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?  ...  We focus on the task of proto-word reconstruction: the model is trained on sets of cognates and their known proto-word, and is then tasked with predicting the proto-word for an unseen set of cognates.  ...
