Exploiting Cross-Lingual Hints to Discover Event Pronouns

Sharid Loáiciga, Christian Hardmeier, Asad Sayeed
2020 International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation  
We explore the possibility of exploiting parallel multilingual corpora as a means of cheap supervision for the classification of three different readings of the English pronoun it: entity, event or pleonastic  ...  We found that the 'event' reading is not very frequent, but can be easily predicted provided that the construction used to translate the it example is a pronoun as well.  ...  We consider all instances translated with the neutral demonstrative pronouns cela, ceci or c ¸a as events. In French, these pronouns are typically used to refer to proposition or phrases.  ...

Combining information extraction and human computing for crowdsourced knowledge acquisition

Sarath Kumar Kondreddi, Peter Triantafillou, Gerhard Weikum
2014 2014 IEEE 30th International Conference on Data Engineering  
This motivates the need for exploiting human intelligence and knowledge using crowd-based human computing (HC) for assessing the validity of facts and for gathering additional knowledge.  ...  To this end, we combine semantic resources like WordNet, ConceptNet, and others with statistics derived from a large Web corpus.  ...  Finally, we have developed a heuristic method for resolving personal pronouns in such texts. We focus on pronouns in singular form, and we exploit gender information for characters.  ...

Literal Occurrences of Multiword Expressions: Rare Birds That Cause a Stir

Agata Savary, Silvio Ricardo Cordeiro, Timm Lichte, Carlos Ramisch, Uxoa Iñurrieta, Voula Giouli
2019 Prague Bulletin of Mathematical Linguistics  
We propose heuristics to automatically pre-identify candidate sentences that might contain literal occurrences of verbal VMWEs, and we apply them to existing treebanks in five typologically different languages  ...  The goal is to identify both cross-lingual and language-specific reasons for LOs to occur.  ...  We try to discover possible cross-lingual reasons that may favour the use of LOs, and, conversely, those reasons which are language specific. The contributions of these efforts are manifold.  ...

Note that this is a cumulative report designed to be self-contained, so it builds on and substitutes previous versions of this report (D3.1 and D3.2), and it incorporates core information from the software  ...  The discovered links can be monolingual/cross-lingual and techniques supporting link discovery can be either automatic or semi-automatic.  ...  On the other hand, Cross-lingual embeddings, based on the distribution of embeddings across languages (Artetxe et al., 2018) , were used to build cross-lingual word embeddings trained with monolingual  ...

The divergent views expressed in the literature on the linguistic competence of chimpanzees is due in large part to the lack of a common framework in which to compare human and chimpanzee signing.  ...  This conclusion draws attention to the significance of the difference between syntax and lexical parataxis which in turn tells us something more about the nature of human language.  ...  Cross-lingual measurements of interconsonantal differences.

Poets of Bifurcated Tongues, or on the Plurilingualism of Canadian-Hungarian Poets

Katalin Kürtösi
1993 TTR traduction terminologie rédaction  
Without underestimating the abovementioned contributions, we can agree that much has to be done to discover and evaluate this special aspect of Hungarian literature.  ...  Savard means the ability of a person "to actively or passively use two or more languages with some skill," as opposed to institutional plurilingualism, when "the state undertakes to deal with its citizens  ...  The subtitle, however, extends the boundaries: Mondschein is in German, so it would be more accurate to call it a multi-(or at least tri-)lingual poem.  ...

LINGUISTICS AND ANTHROPOLOGY [chapter]

2002 Structuralism & Semiotics  
The subject of linguistics, anthropology, and verbal art is an especially gratifying one for a folklorist of my persuasion to deal with, not only because of my own personal commitment to a unified perspective  ...  on all three areas, but also because my folklorist's investment in tradition leads me to value that part of our collective scholarly birthright as linguists, anthropologists, and folklorists, that is  ...  The challenge is to analyze the subtleties of everyday communicative behavior, the structure of hints, suggestions, and avoidances, which occur not as public, formal events, but as part of the most everyday  ...
