Hi Felix, Yves, All,

Automated term extraction tools (as far as I have seen) do not mark phrases as non-terms. Practically, term extraction tools specify that a phrase IS A TERM with a certain confidence. Just theoretically, I can imagine that there might be a tool that performs also non-term annotations, but ... it is very unlikely. The term="no" as I see it is a means for human experts to explicitly say that a phrase is definitely not a term for some very specific cases that some term extraction tools might get wrong or tend to get wrong. But that means that the confidence in such a scenario is 1.0.

I hope this helps further ...

Best regards,
Mārcis ;o)

Good questions. I made the edits, see
http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/drafts/its20/its20.html#terminology-local

but maybe Mārcis can clarifiy this?

Best,

Felix

This is opposed to termConfidence which is part of the Terminology data category. termConfidence represents the confidence in just a single piece of information: the decision whether something is a term or not (term). termConfidence does not relate to the confidence about additional information about the term that can be encoded with termInfoRef."
