Exploitation de reformulations pour l'acquisition d'un vocabulaire expert/non expert

Abstract : Exploitation of reformulations for the acquisition of expert/non-expert vocabulary. Notions from technical areas, such as medicine, often present understanding difficulties for non-expert people. A vocabulary which associates technical terms with expressions used by lay people can help in making the technical texts easier to understand. The purpose of this work is to build such vocabulary. We propose to exploit the notion of reformulation through three methods : extraction of abbreviations, exploitation of reformulation markers, and of parentheses. The segments associated with these methods are then aligned with medical terminologies. Our results cover a large number of medical terms and show between 0.68 and 0.98 extraction precision. On the whole, several dozens of thousands of pairs are proposed. These results are analyzed and compared with the existing work. MOTS-CLÉS : Reformulation, extraction d'information, terminologie médicale, langage profane.
