Experiments on Cross-Linguality and Question-Type Driven Strategy Selection for Open-Domain QA
2 LNCS 4022, Pages 429-438, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2006
 
We describe the extensions made to our 2004 QA@CLEF German/English QA-system, toward a fully German-English/English-German cross-language system with answer validation through web usage. Details concerning the processing of factoid, definition and temporal questions are given and the results obtained in the monolingual German, bilingual English-German and German-English tasks are briefly presented and discussed.
