Abstract

Analysis and formalization are presented about the enumerative series structure in Spanish for subsequent computational implantation. The enumerative series is a textual construct composed by a matrix, an enumerator and an enumeration. Each element of an enumeration is called ‘enumerating’; all elements are related to an “enumeratheme”. Enumeratings and enumeratheme establish a kind of hypernym-hyponym relationship (e.g. in “the days Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday”; “days” is the enumeratheme and “Monday”, “Tuesday”, and “Wednesday”, the enumeratings). According to this description, a formalization is achieved allowing computational implantation for the detection of enumerations and enumerative series. To accomplish this objective, the NooJ program is used, and the methodology is tested on a corpus of Wikipedia entries related to the medical field, reaching 100% precision, 52.50% recall, and 68.65% F measure.
