Automatic Mapping of French Discourse Connectives to PDTB Discourse Relations

WS 2017  ·  Majid Laali, Leila Kosseim ·

In this paper, we present an approach to exploit phrase tables generated by statistical machine translation in order to map French discourse connectives to discourse relations. Using this approach, we created ConcoLeDisCo, a lexicon of French discourse connectives and their PDTB relations. When evaluated against LEXCONN, ConcoLeDisCo achieves a recall of 0.81 and an Average Precision of 0.68 for the Concession and Condition relations.
