Meaning Estimation Method of Alphabetical Abbreviation Using Lexical Conceptualization and Wikipedia

Kazuto Goto, Seiji Tsuchiya, and Hirokazu Watabe
Abstract—Alphabetical abbreviations are often used; they are composed of initials of each English word. However, alphabetical abbreviations have problem with the polysemy. In this paper, we propose the method to estimate the meaning of an alphabetical abbreviation. The proposal method regards meaning estimation of an alphabetical abbreviation as meaning estimation of unknown word. This method uses the concept base, and, Calculation of Degree of Association or Earth Mover's Distance. They allow conceptualization of a word and evaluation of semasiological association between conceptualized words. And, Wikipedia is used to complement lack of information due to an alphabetical abbreviation. This Paper used 129 articles to evaluate the proposal method. The experiments showed that the accuracy of the proposal method was 79% and this method was effective than other method.

Index Terms—Alphabetical abbreviation, meaning estimation, conceptualization, Wikipedia.
