  A. Iida's Studies in Japanese Linguistics
It is to be noted that the classifier "-hiki" has two levels of usage: "-hiki1" for counting unspecified non-human beings, and "-hiki2" for counting non-human, non-avian beings without salient features in physique, social function or significance.
When a speaker encounters a sentence with an NQ, he or she may refer to the agreement between the classifier and the NPs as candidates in the first stage, and then, if he or she is sure that the only NP is focused as a candidate for agreement, may apply the syntactic rule for QF.
Classifiers are not a mere morpheme or a marker to add or emphasize the prominent characteristics of an entity being counted, but form their category in a form of meaning chains, as well as other parts of speech in natural languages.

 Patent 6061675: Methods and apparatus for classifying terminology utilizing a knowledge catalog
A document classified utilizing the knowledge catalog of the present invention may be presented in any language because the concepts in the static ontologies are applicable across languages.
However, for a purely linguistic classification hierarchy, the house "concept" may include types of houses, such as a ranch style house, a contemporary house, etc. The knowledge catalog of the present invention provides the framework or structure to generate hierarchical classifications including both semantic derivatives and/or linguistic derivatives of high level concepts.
The linguistic engine further includes a topic extractor, that identifies the topics of the input discourse, a kernel generator, that generates summarized versions of the input discourse, and a content extractor that identifies key content of the input discourse.

 Classifier (linguistics) - Enpsychlopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
A classifier, in linguistics, is a word or morpheme used in some languages in certain contexts to indicate the word class of a noun.
Classifier systems typically involve 20 or more classifiers (separate lexemes that co-occur with the noun), while gender systems vary from two to twenty classes at most.
In addition, use of the classifier may be influenced by the pragmatics of style and the choice of written or spoken mode.

Grinevald places the classifiers in the middle of a continuum, where in its grammatical end are the gender and noun class systems, and in its lexical end are measure terms and class terms.
It is claimed that while the meaning of a linguistic structure is a function of its parts and their manner of combination, this includes also that one of the 'parts' is the construction itself.
He describes the function of classifiers and classifier-like elements in the context of the gestalt principles of the isolation of units and the unification of isolates.

This type of indexing was probably influenced by the recent focus on syntax in the field of linguistics.
The claims of Farradane, Austin, and other information scientists to have identified all possible relationships are inconsistent with the linguistic literature, in which new syntactic structures are constantly being identified.

However, a natural science model has never completely predominated sociology, nor has there ever been much consensus, even among the adherents of that model, as to what would constitute valid evidence or even the proper unit of analysis.
Consequently, the distinction between sociology and social theory has always been more reflective of classifier than the theory described as belonging to one or the other.
Many theorists prefer to describe themselves as social theorists because they are critical of the sociological community or were not trained as sociologists.

The new, third edition of the Linguistics of American Sign Language (ASL) videotape expands the linguistic analysis found in previous editions to correspond to the new, revised and updated textbook.
In other segments, author Clayton Valli demonstrates signs as specific examples of the linguistic properties of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and the use of language introduced in the text.
Used in tandem, the Linguistics of American Sign Language textbook and videotape continue to be the complete, comprehensive resources for the systematic study of the structure of ASL.

These learned probabilities, along with the estimated class priors, are then used to classify a new document, d, by calculating the probability P(wid) that d belongs to the class cj based on its observed words.
Figure 6.2 summarizes the training and classification procedures for the naive Bayes classifier (this type of Bayes classifier is called “nave” because it makes the assumption that words occur independently within documents of each class, and “Bayesian” because it uses Bayes rules along with the learned probability terms to classify new documents).
The first classifier is then applied to the unlabeled training examples, and it selects the example d that it is most confident in classifying (i.e., the example that yields the highest probability P(cjd)).

A probabilistic classifier assigns the most probable class to an object, based on a probability model of the interdependencies among the class and a set of input features.
The formality of the method supports evaluation: the talk will briefly describe how the three determinates of classifier performance (the features, the form of the model, and the parameter estimates) can be separately evaluated.
The classifier also performs better on sentences the judges tagged with certainty, showing consistency between the classifier and the human judges.

 Amazon.co.uk: Books: Perspective on Classifier Constructions in Sign Language   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Its major goals are to bring to light critical issues related to the study of classifier constructions and to present contemporary linguistic and psycholinguistic analyses of these constructions.
It is hoped that by doing so, more researchers will be inspired to investigate the nature of classifier constructions across signed languages and further explore the unique aspects of these forms.
Divided into four parts, the papers in this volume discuss the issues of: how sign language classifiers differ from spoken languages; cross-linguistic variation in sign language classifier systems; the role of gesture; the nature of morpho-syntactic and phonological constraints on classifier constructions; the grammaticization process for these forms; and the acquisition of classifier forms.
