TDB 1.1: Extensions on Turkish Discourse Bank

2017-4-3
In this paper we present the recent developments on Turkish Discourse Bank (TDB). We first summarize the resource and present an evaluation. Then, we describe TDB 1.1, i.e. enrichments on 10% of the corpus (namely, added senses for explicit discourse connectives and new annotations for implicit relations, entity relations and alternative lexicalizations). We explain the method of annotation and evaulate the data.

Annotating Subordinators in the Turkish Discourse Bank

In this paper we explain how we annotated subordinators in the Turkish Discourse Bank (TDB), an effort that started in 2007 and is still continuing. We introduce the project and describe some of the issues that were important in annotating three subordinators, namely kars¸ın, ragmen ˘ and halde, all of which encode the coherence relation Contrast-Concession. We also describe the annotation tool.
Pluralism in science
Bakdur, Eser; Sol, Ayhan; Department of Philosophy (2009)
This thesis investigates the determinants of financial development in Turkey. Principle Component Analysis (PCA) is employed in order to examine the main determinants of financial sector development and shed light on the structure of the financial system in Turkey. The empirical studies on financial development suffer from the measurement problem. This study aims to remedy the measurement problem by providing proxies that explain different aspects of financial development more accurately than other proxies ...
Pair Annotation as a Novel Annotation Procedure: The Case of Turkish Discourse Bank
Demirşahin, Işın; Zeyrek Bozşahin, Deniz (Springer, 2017-01-01)
In this chapter, we provide an overview of Turkish Discourse Bank, a resource of ∼ 400,000 words built on a sub-corpus of the 2-million-word METU Turkish Corpus annotated following the principles of Penn Discourse Tree Bank. We first present the annotation framework we adopted, explaining how it differs from the annotation of the original language, English. Then we focus on a novel annotation procedure that we have devised and named pair annotation after pair programming. We discuss the advantages it has ...

Nano structural metal nano composites: synthesis, structural and thermal characterization
Orhan, Tuğba; Kayran, H. Ceyhan; Department of Chemistry (2009)
Recently, the use of block copolymers in preparation of nanocomposites has received great attention as they form well-defined micelles. In this work, the synthesis of different metal functional copolymers, nano structural metal composites and investigation of their reaction mechanism and thermal characteristics by pyrolysis mass spectroscopy have been aimed. Namely, polyisoprene-block-poly2vinylpyridine, (PI-b-P2VP) and poly2vinylpyridine-block-polymetylmethacrylate, (PMMA-b-P2VP) were used as block copolym...
