Computational Cognitive Morphosemantics: Modeling Morphological Compositionality in Hebrew Verbs with Embodied Construction Grammar

Nathan Schneider
2010 Proceedings of the annual meeting of the Berkeley Linguistics Society  
This formal, cognitive study should pave the way for computational models of morphological learning and processing in Hebrew and other languages.  ...  In doing so, this work employs and extends Embodied Construction Grammar (ECG; Bergen and Chang 2005), a computational formalism developed to study grammar from a cognitive linguistic perspective.  ...  Petruck, Rutie Adler, George Lakoff, and Marietta Sionti for their encouragement and feedback on earlier versions of this work; to Tom Recht for grammaticality judgments; to John Bryant and Luca Gilardi  ...

Noun phrase chunking in Hebrew

Yoav Goldberg, Meni Adler, Michael Elhadad
2006 Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computational Linguistics and the 44th annual meeting of the ACL - ACL '06  
We show that the traditional definition of base-NPs as nonrecursive noun phrases does not apply in Hebrew, and propose an alternative definition of Simple NPs.  ...  Morphological features improve the average precision by ~0.5%, recall by ~1%, and F-measure by ~0.75, resulting in a system with average performance of 93% precision, 93.4% recall and 93.2 Fmeasure. *  ...  We plan to address this issue in future work.  ...

Word Segmentation, Unknown-word Resolution, and Morphological Agreement in a Hebrew Parsing System

Yoav Goldberg, Michael Elhadad
2013 Computational Linguistics  
We present a computational model of interfacing the external lexicon and a treebank-based parser, also in the common case where the lexicon and the treebank follow different annotation schemes.  ...  We show that Hebrew word-segmentation and constituency-parsing can be performed jointly using CKY lattice parsing.  ...  The tag set used by the lexicon/analyzer is lexicographic in nature, and is discussed in depth in BGU Computational Linguistics Group (2008) .  ...

An unsupervised morpheme-based HMM for hebrew morphological disambiguation

Meni Adler, Michael Elhadad
2006 Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computational Linguistics and the 44th annual meeting of the ACL - ACL '06  
This paper deals with morphological disambiguation of the Hebrew language, which combines morphemes into a word in both agglutinative and fusional ways.  ...  We adapt HMM algorithms for learning and searching this text representation, in such a way that segmentation and tagging can be learned in parallel in one step.  ...  Hebrew and Arabic Tagging -Previous Work Several works have dealt with Hebrew tagging in the past decade.  ...

As it always has been under similar circumstances in the past, one observes changes today in each tongue in the media of mixing along with a contest of variants of the future lingual hybrid.  ...  Also discussed are principles of linguistic futurology that is tabooed by narrow-minded political interest.  ...  Forecasters normally look for tokens of the future in the past and present and take advantage of systemic approach to check up tendencies.  ...

Linguistic Theory, Linguistic Diversity and Whorfian Economics [chapter]

Nigel Fabb
2016 The Palgrave Handbook of Economics and Language  
Linguistic theory has shown that many aspects of variation are superficial and may not reflect underlying formal similarities between languages, which are relevant to how humans learn and process language  ...  Specific arguments that language causes thought, which have been made in recent economics papers, are examined in the light of what linguistics tells us about superficial and underlying variation.  ...  For example, the past and the non-past (present, future) forms of the verb are distinguished just by adding a low tone to the beginning of the non-past verb.  ...
