Natural language in computer form by Martin Kay( Book )

9 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and Undetermined and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Memorandum describes a scheme for recording text in computer- usable form in such a way that all meaningful typographical distinctions are represented in a standard way. Provision is made for texts in different languages and different alphabets and for subsidiary material such as parallel translations and comments of interest to users and librarians. The basic set of encoding conventions is indefinitely extensible to accommodate new kinds of material. Very large bodies of data require special facilities, and these have been provided by embedding the text encoding scheme in a general file maintenance system. Computer programs are described which simplify conversion of text from these various sources into the standard format. The final section discusses the problem of printing text which has been recorded in the standard format and describes a flexible program for doing this
The catalog input/output system by Martin Kay( Book )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A complete definition of the format used for catalogs on magnetic tape and a description of the routines of the Catalog Input-Output System. Catalog maps, catalog data, and tape labels are written as logical records in a specially designed blocking format. Beginnings and ends of blocks, physical tapes, and catalogs are explicitly marked. The Catalog Input/Output System offers a variety of input/out unit-control operations in addition to the commands for reading and writing data in catalog format. The reading and writing commands are implemented on three levels: Level III handles individual data; Level II reads and writes logical records; and Level I processes blocks of information. (Author)
Computer routines to read natural text with complex formats by Patricia A Graves( Book )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The memorandum describes a set of subroutines for the IBM 7040/44 computers for reading textual material with complex formats and coding conventions--questionnaires, library catalog cards, et.--from any external medium into the high-speed store of the machine. Different kinds of information in the input are recognized by explicit markers, position on the line or page, or syntactic clues given by other items. Less complex material requires only a portion of the system. Information may be recoded according to the user's conventions before being delivered to his program. The routines may be called from either FORTRAN- or MAP-coded programs
The catalog : a flexible structure for data storage by Theodore W Ziehe( Book )

3 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applications that use the computer as a processor of natural languages are considered. The importance of data in these applications requires a general and flexible, yet very efficient, data storage and management system. The basic features of a generalized data structure, called 'The Catalog, ' are described Also described is the encoding scheme that was developed for use with catalogs
The nature of data in language analysis by Theodore W Ziehe( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six tasks in computational linguistics by Kenneth Eugene Harper( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three linguistic problems are discussed: distributional-semantic classification of Russian words, statistical procedures for the discovery of grammatical transformations, and derivationalfamily classification of Russian words. A set of programs for management of a file of unedited test on magnetic tape is reported. One program to be included in a set of glossary-management programs, this one an editing program, is described. Text improvements, setting requirements for a text-editing program, are reported. A list of technical notes prepared under the contract is appended. (Author)
Data management : a comparison of system features by Theodore W Ziehe( Book )

3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Features of four data management systems under development are compared. The four systems are the Time-Shared Data Management System (System Development Corporation) and a variant of it, the Remote File Management System (Computation Center, The University of Texas); Data Manager - 1 (Auerbach Corporation); the Generalized Information System (IBM); and the Catalog System (The RAND Corporation). Comparisons are drawn in two areas: external and internal data structuring and organization. Several differences among the systems are noted and briefly discussed
An item store : its design and implementation by Theodore W Ziehe( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three types of information -- data, capabilities in symbolic form, and knowledge -- are distinguished in an informal manner. The role of each within an information system is sketched as the basis for a discussion of the item store. The item store is a general-purpose formatted store which will serve as a repository for files of inter-related items. The tree serves as the organizing principle for files within the store. The operational modes for the store are described as are the techniques being used to implement these operational modes

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The report documents a research effort regarding the architecture of computer-based semiotic systems. It sketches the concept of a computer-based semiotic system and briefly describes work done in two technical areas important to such systems--data management and process management. A software base upon which to construct a semiotic system is being implemented. That base is also described. Finally, the report outlines several areas of future work suggested by the progress made to date. (Author)

Semiotics, the theory of signs and how they are used, is finding application in the development of machines able to use signs for communication or control. Mechanical devices with this capability are semiotic systems. But the task of explicating such systems requires information management capabilities well beyond any that exist today. This report sets the development of adequate capabilities as an objective and briefly discusses the point of departure taken in work to achieve it. (Author)
