Aspectuality Across Genre: A Distributional Semantics Approach

Thomas Kober, Malihe Alikhani, Matthew Stone, Mark Steedman
2020 Proceedings of the 28th International Conference on Computational Linguistics   unpublished
We show that two elementary dimensions of aspectual class, states vs. events, and telic vs. atelic events, can be modelled effectively with distributional semantics.  ...  Our approach outperforms previous work on three datasets.  ...  We further evaluate our approach on two new genres: image captions and situated human-human conversations, thereby extending the validity of our findings across a variety of genres.  ...

A distributional semantic approach to the periodization of change in the productivity of constructions

Florent Perek, Martin Hilpert
2017 International Journal of Corpus Linguistics  
for periodization, and distributional semantics as a representation of lexical meaning.  ...  In sum, this method offers a promising approach to exploring semantic variation in the lexical fillers of constructions and to modelling constructional change.  ...  Distributional semantics in general, and their vector space model implementation in particular, offer a number of benefits for the present approach.  ...

Discourse relations: Genre-specific degrees of overtness in argumentative and narrative discourse

Carolin Hofmockel, Anita Fetzer, Robert M. Maier, Patrick Saint-Dizier, Manfred Stede
2017 Argument & Computation  
Based on a contrastive approach that compares the argumentative genre of editorial with the narrative genre of personal narrative across two production modes, single-authored data and data elicited in  ...  It employs a doubly contrastive approach that compares the argumentative genre of editorial with the narrative genre of personal narrative both within and across two production modes: single-authored texts  ...  Proportionally, the distribution of overt realizations is found to be significantly unequal in both genres, i.e. at least one DR shows a different distribution than the others (χ 2 (5) = 51.838, p < 0.0001  ...

Classifying Semantic Clause Types: Modeling Context and Genre Characteristics with Recurrent Neural Networks and Attention

Maria Becker, Michael Staniek, Vivi Nastase, Alexis Palmer, Anette Frank
2017 Proceedings of the 6th Joint Conference on Lexical and Computational Semantics (*SEM 2017)  
Detecting aspectual properties of clauses in the form of situation entity types has been shown to depend on a combination of syntactic-semantic and contextual features.  ...  We present a novel take on modeling and exploiting genre information and showcase the adaptation of our system from one language to another.  ...  The distribution of SE types varies with the genre.  ...

Leveraging Machine Learning to Explain the Nature of Written Genres

Marta Vicente, Maria Miro Maestre, Elena Lloret, Armando Suarez Cueto
2021 IEEE Access  
This research presents a data-driven approach to discover and analyze patterns in several textual genres with the aim of identifying and quantifying the differences between them, considering how language  ...  To conduct an investigation of this kind, it is necessary to have a good understanding of what defines and distinguishes each textual genre.  ...  In addition, the tool semantically classifies events into one of seven categories: aspectual; perception; state; reporting; intensional action; intensional state; and, occurrence.  ...

RHETORICAL STRUCTURE OF PROMOTIONAL GENRES: THE CASE OF RESEARCH ARTICLE AND CONFERENCE ABSTRACTS

Deividas Zibalas, Jolanta Šinkūnienė
2019 Discourse and Interaction  
The results show that the key moves ('Background', 'Purpose', 'Methods', 'Results') are distributed fairly similarly across the two types of abstracts; however, the ways they are employed are not always  ...  The study employs quantitative and qualitative analysis and is based on a self-compiled corpus of abstracts from two prestigious linguistic journals (Linguistics and The Journal of Linguistics) and conference  ...  As Hyland (2008: 543) puts it, genre is "a robust pedagogical approach perfectly suited to the teaching of academic writing <…> as it serves a key instructional purpose <…> of illuminating the constraints  ...

Genre determining prediction: Non-standard TAM marking in football language [article]

Jakob Egetenmeyer
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We argue that the two phenomena share a functional core and are licensed in the same way, which is a direct result of the genre they occur in.  ...  We present various corpus studies where we explore the functioning of these phenomena in order to gain insights into their distribution, grammaticalization and their functioning in discourse.  ...  I thank the audience at a talk in Neuchâtel in June 2018 at the conference Chronos 13 for their feedback concerning football language.  ...

Building Context-aware Clause Representations for Situation Entity Type Classification [article]

Zeyu Dai, Ruihong Huang
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Experimental results show that our model achieves the state-of-the-art performance for clause-level situation entity classification on the genre-rich MASC+Wiki corpus, which approaches human-level performance  ...  Specifically, we propose a hierarchical recurrent neural network model to read a whole paragraph at a time and jointly learn representations for all the clauses in the paragraph by extensively modeling  ...  So we manually split folds by ourselves with even genre distribution across folds.  ...

Progressive or not progressive?

Paula Rautionaho, Sandra C. Deshors
2018 International Journal of Learner Corpus Research  
Based on 4,661 verb constructions from five comparable multi-genre corpora, we ran a logistic regression analysis to determine which factors cause English-speaking populations to differ in their constructional  ...  genres.  ...  Finally, it is interesting to note how the difference in the distribution of (non-)progressive constructions across the different genres reflects the different discourse functions that those genres serve  ...
