RSS

mayo 20, 2009
RSS is a family of web sources  formats encoded in XML. It is used to provide updated information to subscribers frequently. The format makes it possible to distribute content without a browser, using a software designed to read RSS feeds. Despite this, it is possible to use the same browser to view RSS content. The latest versions of major browsers can read RSS feeds without additional software. RSS is part of the family of XML formats developed specifically for all types of sites that are updated frequently and through which you can share information and use it on other sites or programs. This is known as re-organize  web site.
There are three types of RSS and its initials acquire a different meaning depending on the specification used:
  • Rich Site Summary. (RSS 0.91)
  • RDF Site Summary. (RSS 0.9 and 1.0)
  • Really Simple Syndication. (RSS 2.0)

 The RSS file is rewritten automatically when there is an update on the contents of the website. Accessing the RSS file is impossible to know if they have updated the content and how news texts, but without the need to access the site except to read the extended version.

Multiword expression (MWE) (Q2)

mayo 20, 2009
Multiword expression (MWE): any phrase that is not entirely predictable on the basis of standard grammar rules and lexical entries
No immediate counterexamples to the claim that any expression that can be realised hyphenated/as a single lexeme or alternatively with spaces (e.g. mailman/postman vs. mail/post man), is a MWE. This could be used in the evaluation of extraction techniques, possibly using external resources to determine whether extracted expressions can be expressed hyphenated/without spaces (e.g. determine “optimal extraction volume” as the point where the ratio of such expressions is maximised)
