Title:Annotating CBC4Kids: A Corpus for Reading Comprehension and Question Answering Evaluation
Authors: Tiphaine Dalmas ; Jochen Leidner ; Bonnie Webber ; Claire Grover ; Johan Bos
Date:Mar 2004
Reading comprehension tests are receiving increased attention within the NLP community as a controlled test-bed for developing, evaluating and comparing robust question answering (NLQA) methods. To support this, we have enriched the MITRE CBC4Kids corpus with multiple XML annotation layers recording the output of various tokenizers, lemmatizers, a stemmer, a semantic tagger, POS taggers and syntactic parsers. To demonstrate its use, we have built a baseline NLQA system for word-overlap based answer retrieval, NLQA evaluation and corpus browsing.
