Abstract

It is well known that Information Retrieval Systems based entirely on syntactic contents have serious limitations. In order to achieve high precision Information Retrieval Systems the incorporation of Natural Language Processing techniques that provide semantic information is needed. For this reason, in this paper a method to determine the semantic role for the constituents of a sentence is presented. The goal of this is to integrate this method in an Information Retrieval System.

Keywords
