The TTC scientific paper "Reference List for Evaluation of Term Extraction Tools" was presented by Elizaveta Loginova (UN-LINA) at the 10th edition of the conference TKE 2012 (Terminology and Knowledge Engineering): "New frontiers in the constructive symbiosis of terminology and knowledge engineering" held at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid on June 19-22 (presentation).
In this paper, we discuss practical and methodological issues of the creation of reference term lists (RTLs) for the evaluation of monolingual and bilingual term candidate extraction from comparable corpora in the domains of wind energy and mobile technology. These reference term lists are intended to serve as a "gold standard" for the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of automatic term extraction tools. We present the preliminary results of the evaluation of the monolingual term extraction. Using the manually collected RTLs, we evaluated monolingual term candidate lists which are automatically extracted from the Spanish texts in the domain of wind energy (paper).
