--help

OUTPUT

All words xml format similar to the SemEval all words disambiguation task. In this format, each term assigned one or more concepts in the metamap xml file are outputed as follows:

 <?xml version="1.0"?>
 <!DOCTYPE corpus SYSTEM  "all-words.dtd">
 <corpus lang="en">
 <text id="001">
 <head id="d001.s001.t001" candidates="C1280500,C2348382">effect</head>
 of
 the
 <head id="d001.s001.t004" candidates="C0449238">duration</head>
 </text>
 </corpus>

There exists an addition to the regular SemEval format. The candidate tags contain each possible sense of the term assigned by metamap. These will be used as the possible senses in the umls-allwords-senserelate.pl program when using the --candidate option. Otherwise, the senses come from doing a dictionary lookup in the MRCONSO table of the UMLS.
