Has Computational Linguistics Become More Applied? [chapter]

Kenneth Church
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In addition, we improve the supervised WSD accuracy by using features computed from word instances in clusters generated by the semi-supervised clustering.  ...  The extraction of information from texts requires resources that contain both syntactic and semantic properties of lexical units.  ...  These phrase pairs are extracted from aligned sentence pairs using heuristics over a statistical word alignment.  ...

Formal Ontology Learning from English IS-A Sentences [article]

Sourish Dasgupta, Ankur Padia, Gaurav Maheshwari, Priyansh Trivedi, Jens Lehmann
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Ontology learning (OL) is the process of automatically generating an ontological knowledge base from a plain text document.  ...  In this paper, we propose a new ontology learning approach and tool, called DLOL, which generates a knowledge base in the description logic (DL) SHOQ(D) from a collection of factual non-negative IS-A sentences  ...  An important work in supervised learning based OL is found in [53] where supervised classifiers were trained on hyponymy and cousin relation rich dataset and then tested on unknown sentences that had  ...

Self-Selected Strategies of L2 Learners: Effects on Immediate- and Delayed Word Retention in Intentional and Incidental Vocabulary Acquisition, With Eye-Tracking Implementation

Ali Al-Hakami
The quantitative data revealed a number of strategies were vulnerable to the significant effects from predictor variables; i.e., group, mode of learning, and test time.  ...  A mixed methods design was used, based on triangulating the findings from quantitative (vocabulary tests and retrospective reporting of strategies) and qualitative (interviews and stimulated recall interviews  ...  Then, several words could be selected from this text and tested after reading.  ...

Cognitive Constructivism and the Epistemic Significance of Sharp Statistical Hypotheses in Natural Sciences [article]

J.M. Stern
2020 arXiv   pre-print
This book presents our case in defense of a constructivist epistemological framework and the use of compatible statistical theory and inference tools.  ...  The FBST - Full Bayesian Significance Test - is the cornerstone of a set of statistical tolls conceived to assess the epistemic value of such eigen-solutions, according to their four essential attributes  ...  The word comes from the past tense of the Greek verb χω, echo, to have, whence it came to mean shape or form; its plural is schemata."  ...

Modeling Narrative Discourse

David K. Elson
Although narratives of all kinds are ubiquitous in daily life, contemporary text processing techniques typically do not leverage the aspects that separate narrative from expository discourse.  ...  We show that these discourse relations are expressive, formal, robust, and through the use of a software system, amenable to corpus collection projects through the use of trained annotators.  ...  This is a "gold standard" corpus that allows us to interpret this problem as a supervised learning task.  ...
