  7. Basic Summarization Method • Document structure analysis • Keyword analysis • Part of Speech and Proper Name Recognition • Sentence selection based on weighted scores

  8. Boas: “A Linguist in the Box” Boas is a semi-automatic knowledge elicitation system that guides a language speaker through the process of developing the static knowledge sources for a moderate-quality, broad-coverage MT system from any “low-density” language into English in about six months. One of the tasks is translating a long list of place names from English into the source language.

  9. The ethnologist and linguist Franz Boas was the founder of the American school of descriptive linguistics. In this photo, circa 1900?, he is shown posing for a model which was being made of a Kwakuitl Winter Ceremonial dancer in which the dancer emerges from within a circular hole cut in the dancing screen.
