A syntactic theory of type generativity and sharing

Xavier Leroy
1996 Journal of functional programming  
AbstractThis paper presents a purely syntactic account of type generativity and sharing – two key mechanisms in the SML module system – and shows its equivalence with the traditional stamp-based description  ...  This syntactic description recasts the SML module system in a more abstract, type-theoretic framework.  ...  Therefore, a theory of type generativity must not go too far and e.g. systematically generate new types for all functor applications.  ...

A General Model Transformation Methodology to Serve Enterprise Interoperability Data Sharing Problem [chapter]

Structural priming can inform syntactic analyses of partially grammaticalized constructions

Elaine J. Francis
2017 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
Branigan & Pickering (B&P) argue successfully that structural priming provides valuable information for developing psychologically plausible syntactic and semantic theories.  ...  I then consider cases in which evidence from priming cannot distinguish between competing syntactic analyses.  ...  A psychologically plausible theory of syntactic and semantic representation must therefore take into account many different types of evidence, each of which has its own advantages and limitations.  ...

INFORMATION-BASED THEORY OF SYNTAX AND SEMANTICS

Secondly, structure sharing is a general mechanism which comprises more than one type that differ in the type of shared substructure: the one in which the entire SYNSEM value of a sign is shared, the one  ...  P&S-94 analyzes both types with a single feature and a principle, employing the mechanism of structure sharing of different sorts.  ...  The central mechanism of the theory is structure sharing.  ...

Extracting HPSG Lexicon from Arabic VerbNet

Noureddine Loukil, Kais Haddar
2016 Research in Computing Science  
This paper presents the construction of a HPSG lexicon of Arabic verbal entities, automatically inferred from the Arabic VerbNet, a large coverage verb lexicon where verbs are classified using syntactic  ...  Extensive analysis of the Arabic VerbNet classes has led to the adoption of a finite set of mapping rules between AVN classes and HPSG subcategorization and semantics descriptions covering the majority  ...  It encompasses syntax and semantics shared among a set of verbs (the members of the class).  ...

LEARNING ABOUT THE SYNTAX-SEMANTICS INTERFACE: A STUDY OF COGNATE VERBS IN BRAZILIAN PORTUGUESE AND ITALIAN

Miriam Lemle, Isabella Lopes Pederneira
2011 Revista da ABRALIN  
A análise comparativa de verbos cognatos em línguas parentes fornece informações relevantes para esclarecer a distinção teórica necessária entre dois tipos de propriedades semânticas dos verbos.  ...  Structure (d) is shared for L A T S -S I : A S O C V I B P - A I 132 several types of 'beatings' and 'poundings' but not for 'nail poundings' and 'children hittings' in Italian.  ...  Of course: no syntactic sharing, no semantic sharing. Syntax is really very strong! And the two verbs don't "count" as the "same" verb to bilingual speakers.  ...

Building a Tibetan Syntactic and Semantic Dependency Treebank

Tashi Gyal, Likun Qiu
2016 Innovative Computing Information and Control Express Letters, Part B: Applications  
Further, we work out a syntactic and semantic annotation schema for Tibetan, and train a syntactic parsing system and a semantic parsing system on our newly-built Tibetan dependency treebank.  ...  This paper takes dependency grammar as the theoretical basis to build a Tibetan syntactic and semantic dependency treebank. We first introduce the basic principles of dependency grammar.  ...  Fund of China (No. 14ZDB101), Innovative Support Program for Young Teachers of Tibetan Universities (QC2015-19), and Zhufeng Scholar Project.  ...

Feature sharing in agreement

Dag Trygve Truslew Haug, Tatiana Nikitina
2015 Natural language & linguistic theory  
This article discusses the mechanism of feature sharing in the analysis of agreement across theories.  ...  We also show that phenomena in Tsez and in Algonquian that have so far been described in terms of long distance agreement lend themselves to a treatment in terms of feature sharing, and we look at the  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Oleg Belyaev, Grev Corbett, Mary Dalrymple, Michael Daniel, Marius Jøhndal, Louisa Sadler, associate editor Ad Neeleman and NLLT reviewers for valuable feedback on the research  ...

No nouns, no verbs? A rejoinder to Panagiotidis

David Barner, Alan Bale
2005 Lingua  
Regarding overgeneration, it is argued that syntactic proposals, whether lexicalist or non-lexicalist, fail to generate ungrammatical strings of the type described by Panagiotidis, and that the productivity  ...  We conclude that the systematic interpretation of purely syntactic features supports a narrow syntactic theory of noun-verb innovation, but that the residual idiosyncrasy argues for a non-lexicalist theory  ...  Both lexicalist and non-lexicalist theories require the acquisition of syntactic features and rules for generating phrases.  ...

Our main result is a (significant) proof-relevant and phase-sensitive generalization of the Reynolds abstraction theorem for a calculus of program modules, based on a new kind of logical relation called  ...  Using the insight that logical relations/parametricity is itself a form of phase distinction between the syntactic and the semantic, we contribute a new synthetic approach to phase separated parametricity  ...  Any opinions, ndings and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors and do not necessarily re ect the views of the AFOSR.  ...
