Specialty Areas: computational linguistics; distributional semantics;

The PhD is part of the ADDICTE project (Distributional analysis in
specialized domain) funded by the French National Research Funding
Agency (ANR). The goal of the project is to propose an operational
solution to the distributional semantic analysis in specialized domain
to construct semantico-conceptual representations of the domain (domain
ontologies, thesaurus, terminological resources) which can be used both
in knowledge engineering and in some documentary applications (indexing
of documents for instance).

The PhD will focus on the construction of the meaning of specialized
linguistic units: composition and distribution. It will be focus more
specifically on the semantic representation of complex terms,
constructed morphologically or syntactically, on the processes of
construction, and on the computation and exploitation of these
representations in multi-domain and multilingual contexts. In
particular, it will study the semantic compositionality of complex terms
based on the distributional analysis of their components and the
semantic relations that can be induced between the complex terms in
order to provide existing terminologies with a fine structuring.
