English abstract

We propose a procedure for the linguistic treatment of Spanish questions as a step prior to their classification in question answering systems. The main types of question answering systems and their basic architecture are described. We review the principal question classification taxonomies used to date and the different fields from which they have been derived. Finally, we present the stages of linguistic analysis that the text of questions in question answering systems should be subject to in order to facilitate the location of appropriate answers.

Spanish abstract

Se propone un procedimiento para el tratamiento lingüístico de las preguntas en español como paso previo a su clasificación en los sistemas de búsqueda de respuestas. Se mencionan los principales tipos de sistemas de búsqueda de respuestas y su arquitectura básica. Se revisan las principales taxonomías utilizadas hasta el momento para la clasificación de preguntas y las distintas perspectivas desde las que se enfocan. Finalmente, se presentan las etapas de análisis lingüístico a las que ha de someterse el texto de las preguntas en estos sistemas para facilitar la localización de las respuestas adecuadas.
