Temporal expression extraction system, including temporal expression recognition and normalization, for Indonesian language, written in Python.


###Usage ! The input file(s) must be in the TimeML annotation format !

python python TimexExtraction.py dir_name [options]        or
python python TimexExtraction.py file_name [options]

options: -o output_dir_name/file_name (default: dir_path/dir_name_Timex/ for directory and file_path/file_name_timex.tml for file)

The output file(s) will be a TimeML document annotated with temporal expressions (TIMEX3 tags).

#####To convert TimeML file(s) to HTML for better viewing

python python ConvertToHTML.py dir_name [options]        or
python python ConvertToHTML.py file_name [options]

options: -o output_dir_name/file_name (default: dir_path/dir_name_HTML/ for directory and file_path/file_name.html for file)

###Modules IndoTimex contains two main modules:

  1. Timex recognition, a finite state transducer (FST) to recognize temporal expressions and their types (based on the TimeML standard, i.e. DATE, DURATION, TIME and SET). The complete FST can be seen in lib/fst/timex.pdf (minimized and drawn with OpenFST).
  2. Timex normalization, an extension of TimeNorm, a library for normalizing the values of temporal expressions (based on the ISO 8601 standard) using synchronous context free grammars, for Indonesian language. To run the timex normalizer: java -jar ./lib/timenorm-id-0.9.2-jar-with-dependencies.jar ./lib/id.grammar.
