Inferring Discourse Relations from PDTB-style Discourse Labels for Argumentative Revision Classification

Fan Zhang, Diane J. Litman, Katherine Forbes-Riley
2016 International Conference on Computational Linguistics  
In this paper we propose two approaches to infer discourse relations in a paragraph-level context from annotated PDTB labels.  ...  Penn Discourse Treebank (PDTB)-style annotation focuses on labeling local discourse relations between text spans and typically ignores larger discourse contexts.  ...  Acknowledgments We want to thank the members of the SWoRD and ITSPOKE groups for their helpful feedback and all the anonymous reviewers for their suggestions.  ...

Surface Realisation from Knowledge-Bases

Bikash Gyawali, Claire Gardent
2014 Proceedings of the 52nd Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (Volume 1: Long Papers)  
A key feature of this approach is that grammar induction is driven by the extended domain of locality principle of TAG (Tree Adjoining Grammar); and that it takes into account both syntactic and semantic  ...  We present a simple, data-driven approach to generation from knowledge bases (KB).  ...  This procedure extracts the subtrees relating the argument variables of a semantic functors such as an event or a role e.g., a tree describing a verb and its arguments as shown in the top Variable names  ...

Reading Comprehension with Graph-based Temporal-Casual Reasoning

Yawei Sun, Gong Cheng, Yuzhong Qu
2018 International Conference on Computational Linguistics  
In this work, to answer such questions involving temporal and causal relations, we generate event graphs from text based on dependencies, and rank answers by aligning event graphs.  ...  Experiments on RACE and MCTest show that state-of-the-art methods are notably improved by using our approach as an add-on.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported in part by the NSFC under Grants 61772264 and 61572247, and in part by the Qing Lan and Six Talent Peaks Programs of Jiangsu Province.  ...

Enriching Large-Scale Eventuality Knowledge Graph with Entailment Relations [article]

Changlong Yu, Hongming Zhang, Yangqiu Song, Wilfred Ng, Lifeng Shang
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we propose a scalable approach to model the entailment relations between eventualities ("eat an apple" entails "eat fruit").  ...  Detailed experiments and analysis demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach and quality of the resulting knowledge graph.  ...  Eventuality Pre-processing For each eventuality E i , as the verb can be connected to multiple arguments, it has a multiway tree structure rather than a binary tree structure like typed predicates or propositions  ...
