Subject Re: cTakes: question on updating cue words

Actually, I think Matt's suggestion is a bit out of date -- during development we removed the
dependency on the lucene dictionary lookup and now the under development version does read
those psv files directly.

But this still doesn't help Paula since she's trying to run the current release. I thought
Matt or Pei might have some info about whether its possible to modify negation cue words for
that release? For example, I can see in the code it uses a "cue model" which can be found
in ctakes-assertion-res but it is a binary and I'm not sure what kind. Is there any way to
modify that file?

Thank you, Pei.  I believe I had signed up for the dev list right after Matt posted so I didn't
see his email.  I will try it out.

Merry Christmas to you and everyone on the list.  :-)

Were you able to try Matt's suggestion on dev@?

Hello again cTAKES Community,

I think Tim's away for the holidays since I didn't see any  response.   Could someone else
assist?  To reiterate, I'd like to manually update the cue words for the polarity and uncertainty
features.     Please see below for details.

Hi Tim,  I just realized that my manual cue word updates didn't take.   :-(

I updated these two files from the med-facts.i2b21.2-SNAPSHOT.jar, then rebundled and added
back to cTAKES:
1.  negation_cue_list.txt
2.  certainty.txt

Is there another file that you know of that needs to be updated?    In the cue folder under
the jar contains only text files perhaps there's another text file I need to update, would
you know what the files would be or what other updates need to be made?

Paula, I think to use the released version of ctakes you will have to do what you proposed
- modify the jar. The checked in files (*.psv) that you are finding are for the under-development

Hi Pei,

I don't consider this a bug so not sure why a jira ticket is needed, I just need to add 2
cue words wondering if I can do it manually?

Exploring a bit, I see there are .psv files in Assertion component in the  Cue_Words folder
that I updated but it doesn't seem to work.  I also added to the Semantic_Classes folder (in
Assertion as well), the cue words in the .txt file and that didn't work either.

One thing that I haven't tried is updating the cue words in the org.mitre.medfacts.i2b2.cuefiles
package for the jar file:  medfacts-i2b2-1.2.SNAPSHPOT.jar.  That would be a little more work
since I need to extract and rebuild jar file and add back to project.

I'm kind of on a huge deadline and hoping I can make these changes today so hoping this doesn't
require a lot of time to just add a couple cue words.

By the way, was is a .psv file?

[moved to dev@]
Hi Paula,
My suggestion would be to open a Jira item so that it could be tracked:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CTAKES (Feel free to create a new account).
Even cooler if you could attach the affected files with the patch(diffs) and any tests.

Subject: cTakes: question on updating cue words

Hello again cTAKES Community,

I would like to  add additional cue words to polarity (for negation) and uncertainty.    I
would so appreciate if someone can let me know how I can add additional cue words.
