Abstract

One of the essential topics in human-computer communication is the disambiguation of the Chinese language. To understand the new progress in this field, this paper introduces the commonly used disambiguation methods, including the “three-domain theory” and the atomic theory used by linguists, and the neural network disambiguation and sliding semantic string matching disambiguation used by computer engineers. After pointing out the limitations of the existing disambiguation methods, the paper introduces a new disambiguation method, disambiguation with rhythm, which is studied in the book entitled Syntactic Disambiguation of Modern Chinese with Experimental Prosodic. The paper reveals that the book Syntactic Disambiguation of Modern Chinese with Experimental Prosodic combines theoretical discussion and social needs, and provides new ideas and methods for the study of Chinese disambiguation. In one word, the book, which has changed the direction of disambiguation studies, is a masterpiece in Chinese disambiguation research.

Keywords: Disambiguation of Chinese language, disambiguation with rhythm, human-computer communication, syntactic disambiguation of modern Chinese with experimental prosodic
