Ab Antiquo: Neural Proto-language Reconstruction [article]

Carlo Meloni, Shauli Ravfogel, Yoav Goldberg
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We address the task of proto-word reconstruction, in which the model is exposed to cognates in contemporary daughter languages, and has to predict the proto word in the ancestor language.  ...  The comparative method utilizes those regularities to reconstruct proto-words based on observed forms in daughter languages. Can this process be efficiently automated?  ...  Experimental Setup NMT-based Neural Model Our proto-word reconstruction setup follows an encoder-decoder with attention architecture, similar to contemporary neural machine translation (NMT) systems  ...

An apostrophe to Scots: the invention and diffusion of the Scots apostrophe in eighteenth-century Scottish verse

David William Selfe
2021
The use of apostrophised forms undermines perceptions of Scots as a language independent from English and is solely for the benefit of accessibility for an English readership. 3.  ...  There was no original stasis, no complete proto-text crystallised in time: instead, Millet Zumthor's theory, however, is not without contention.  ...  if you found forty five cents in one pocket and thirty five cents in the other what would you have teacher abe someone elses pants In lesson to teach this symbol?  ...
