Average semantic depthS.ASD for a sentence S = <w1 w2 . . . wn> containing n content-carrying words = the average of the semantic depths of the individual words
Semantic height (SH) SHT(w) of a word w is the length of the longest path in T from word w to a leaf node
Average semantic heightS.ASH for a sentence S = <w1 w2 . . . wn> containing n content-carrying words (non stop-words) = the average of the semantic heights of the individual words
Intuition: more specific sentences tend to include words which occur rarely in some reference corpus
Named entities (NE) are commonly occurring groups of words which indicate specific semantic content
Proper Nouns (PN) are commonly occurring groups of words which indicate specific semantic content
Sentence length, denoted S.Len, is a weak indicator of its specificity in the sense that more specific sentences tend to be somewhat longer than more general sentences.
