3.2 Chinese Lexical Chain Processing
The fundamental idea of building CLCP is a botom-up concatenating process based on the
signiicance degree of distribution rate to extract the most meaningful LCs as anecodotes from
a string. We treated a news document as a long string composed of a series of characters and
Most of the traditional studies identify words from the whole context and store all the pro-
cessed tokens for further processing as Figure 2 . In this way, even a moderate-sized document
may require hundreds of thousands of tokens, which will consume lots of memory and may
incur unacceptable run-time overhead. Due to the number of distinct tokens processed is less
than that in the document, we adopted a sharing concept to allow reuse of the identical tokens.
We considered each character as a basic unit from which to build compounds as a composite,
which in turn can be grouped to form larger compounds. Since the character and compound
will be treated uniformly, it makes the application simple.

By doing so, we adopted the concept of lyweight and composite design paterns proposed
shared object that can be used in the whole context simultaneously. Figure 4 represents the
part-whole hierarchy of texts and the way to use recursive composition. By applying flyweight
design patern, it supports the use of large numbers of ine-grained objects eiciently. By ap-
plying composite design patern, it makes the application easier to add new components.
