Abstract: Users of information retrieval systems presumably have (subconscious) reasons for choosing certain ways of formulating their queries. Consequently, the words used may tell us something about the users’ intentions. However, researchers in Contextual IR have a strong emphasis on computational solutions and tend to ignore a careful linguistic analysis of the actual queries. As a first step towards such a linguistic treatment, I suggest that we treat classification as a dimension parallel to space and time and learn from our experience with these dimensions in trying to cope with subjectivity in connection with IR systems.
