Abstract

Most research into lexical pattern extraction has been performed on general corpora, but recently research into extracting patterns from biomedical texts has become another topic of interest. I present an algorithm for extracting meronym pairs (part-whole relationship, e.g. finger and hand) from biomedical texts. This algorithm is based upon a method for the extraction of meronym pairs from general corpora. I evaluate the validity of using methods developed for general corpora on more domain-specific texts by comparing the results of the original method with our algorithm. My findings suggest that the type of corpus is not the main factor in performance, but the specific difficulty of using simple methods is.
