2020 arXiv   pre-print
We demonstrate that using Temporal Word Embeddings with a Compass C-BOW model is more effective compared to different approaches including Logistic Regression and a Feed Forward Neural Network using accuracy  ...  Our system focuses on using variations of training sets and different semantic detection methods.  ...  Semantic Change Detection Methods We employed the following approaches for detecting words whose lexical semantics have changed: (a) Orthogonal Procrustes (OP): Due to the stochastic nature of CBOW/SG  ...

Common and modality-specific processes in the mental lexicon

Kim Kirsner, D. Milech, P. Standen

One approach to the question involves observation of repetition effects in word-processing tasks.  ...

Reasoning about definiteness in a language without articles

James N. Collins
2016 Semantics and Linguistic Theory  
Most theories of implicature make reference to a notion of alternatives. Interlocutors reason about what the speaker could have said. In this paper, I investigate the structure of these alternatives.  ...  I show that Tagalog indefinites give rise to non-uniqueness implicatures via competition with definites, as in English.  ...  Several theories, including Horn's (1972) original proposal, require items on a lexical scale to be ordered by semantic strength. This approach may be extended to a and the.  ...

Interrogative serial verb constructions in Kavalan

Dong-yi Lin
2014 Proceedings of the annual meeting of the Berkeley Linguistics Society  
All the syntactic and semantic evidence converges on the conclusion that the lexical verb in a tanian-ISVC is an adjunct to verbal tanian.  ...  The second verb in a Kavalan SVC also conforms to the AV-restriction. The AV-restriction is thus an indication of a non-finite reduced subordinate clause.  ...

VOICE AND CONTROL STRUCTURE IN JAVANESE: A LEXICAL-FUNCTIONAL APPROACH

Agus Subiyanto Subiyanto
2013 e-Journal of Linguistics  
With a lexical-functional approach, this paper aims to discuss voice selections in Javanese control constructions.  ...  In this case, a transitive matrix verb in the AV form may alternate with the PV form or the OV form. The OV form is used when the Agent is a first or a second person.  ...  In this case, a lexical-functional approach is employed, especially to discuss the argument structure of control verbs and the mapping with the functional structure and the semantic structure.  ...

Aeronautical Meteorology in Aeronautical Language and in Aviation Language: a hybrid field?

Rafaela Araújo Jordão Rigaud Peixoto, Janine Maria Mendonça Pimentel
2020 The ESPecialist: Research in Language for Specific Purposes  
Based on the theory of lexical semantics for terminology proposed by L'Homme (2020), the syntactic and semantic properties of a small set of Portuguese terms were analyzed in two separate textual corpora  ...  For that, the combinatorics of terms were examined by means of a concordancing tool and were categorized by means of semantic labels.  ...  Semantic labels, such as Agent, Patient, Instrument, just to name a few, are then used to capture generalizations across lexical items.  ...

A graph based approach to estimating lexical cohesion

Hayrettin Gürkök, Murat Karamuftuoglu, Markus Schaal
2008 Proceedings of the second international symposium on Information interaction in context - IIiX '08  
In this paper we make use of a graph-based approach to capture term contexts and estimate the level of lexical cohesion in a document.  ...  Lexical cohesion is a characteristic of natural language texts, which can be used to determine whether the query terms are used in the same context in the document.  ...  The lexical-semantic dependencies, or lexical cohesive relationships, between words in a text form a common context that "makes text hang together" [6] .  ...
