Abstract

Up to now, the results of applying sophisticated NL techniques to IR have beenmostly disappointing. Our research aims at investigating in detail the role of syntacticanalysis in IR and at finding answers to the question why it works better for somequeries and worse for others. The final goal is a hybrid algorithm that selectively appliessyntactic analysis to certain classes of queries while relying on standard statisticaltechniques otherwise.
