Summary of the paper

Title QUEMDISSE? Reported speech in Portuguese
Authors Cláudia Freitas, Bianca Freitas and Diana Santos
Abstract This paper presents some work on direct and indirect speech in Portuguese using corpus-based methods: we report on a study whose aim was to identify (i) Portuguese verbs used to introduce reported speech and (ii) syntactic patterns used to convey reported speech, in order to enhance the performance of a quotation extraction system, dubbed QUEMDISSE?. In addition, (iii) we present a Portuguese corpus annotated with reported speech, using the lexicon and rules provided by (i) and (ii), and discuss the process of their annotation and what was learned.
Topics Corpus (Creation, Annotation, etc.), Information Extraction, Information Retrieval, Lexicon, Lexical Database
