  • Wikipedia mining tools(1) extracting collocations from Wikipediaarticles for the "related collocations” section ofthe Learning Collocations collection.(2) using a Wikipedia server running at theUniversity of Waikato’s Computer ScienceDepartment to retrieve definitions and relatedtopics for each query term.
  • When a user issues a query, e.g. “economic bubble”, FLAX is doing the following: (1) Grouping collocation types e.g. noun + noun from the selected corpus (BNC, BAWE, Wikipedia)
  • (2) If the query term, e.g. “economic bubble" matches an article in Wikipedia,collocations of that article are presented as related collocations, grouped by thekeywords of that article. The keywords are ranked using their term frequency–inverse document frequency (TF-IDF) scores.
  • (3) Retrieves the definition of the query term (normally, the first sentence of thematched article (e.g. the ”economic bubble" article) from the Wikipedia server.
  • (4) Retrieve related articles for the ”economic bubble” from the Wikipedia serverand present as ‘related topics’.
