Cross-Lingual Semantic Similarity Measure for Comparable Articles


We aim in this research to find and compare crosslingual articles concerning a specific topic. So, we need measure for that. This measure can be based on bilingual dictionaries or based on numerical methods such as Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI). In this paper, we use the LSI in two ways to retrieve Arabic-English comparable articles. The first one is monolingual: the English article is translated into Arabic and then mapped into the Arabic LSI space; the second one is crosslingual: Arabic and English documents are mapped into Arabic-English LSI space. Then, we compare LSI approaches to the dictionary-based approach on several English-Arabic parallel and comparable corpora. Results indicate that the performance of cross-lingual LSI approach is competitive to monolingual approach, or even better for some corpora. Moreover, both LSI approaches outperform the dictionary approach.
