Besides the natural languages in Latin family, Turkish has its own temporal logic to model the order of events.
TimeML is one of the challenging markup language for temporal expressions and event orders.
In this study, we have researched the philosophy behind TimeML which are Reichenbach and Allen’s temporal logics and we have adapted Turkish temporal logic to these philosophical approaches. Also we have applied this philosophical improvement on TimeML applications and tested our success on a corpus created during this study, since there is no previous work on the temporal logic field of Turkish. The test results showed that, the success of TimeML modeling capability increased from 53% to 91%.
