Interval Relations in Lexical Semantics of Verbs

Minhua Ma, Paul Mc Kevitt
2004 Artificial Intelligence Review  
Here the temporal relations within verb semantics, particularly ordered pairs of verb entailment, are studied using Allen's interval-based temporal formalism.  ...  Numerous temporal relations of verbal actions have been analysed in terms of various grammatical means of expressing verbal temporalisation such as tense, aspect, duration and iteration.  ...  Acknowledgements We are grateful for useful ideas and constructive comments on an earlier version of this paper from Dr.  ...

Situations and intervals

Rebecca J. Passonneau
1987 Proceedings of the 25th annual meeting on Association for Computational Linguistics -  
Each situation type has a distinct temporal structure, represented in terms of one or more intervals.  ...  It analyzes the tense and aspect of the real-verb to generate representations of three types of situations-states, processes and events--and to locate the situations with respect to the time at which the  ...  This approach to the compositional semantics of temporal reference is similar in spirit to interval semantics.  ...

The Paradigmatic and Syntagmatic Priming Effect of Part of Speech Representation

Carol Lin Xue, Yi-Sheng Lv
2022 Complexity  
Priming effect experiment can test the correlation between the parts of speech feature and the lexical processing process.  ...  Part of speech feature is the representation between syntactic morphology and semantic category.  ...  In these experimental tasks, subjects are asked to estimate the semantic categories and semantic relations. e researchers calculate the subjects' response time to observe the semantic priming effect.  ...

Automatic thematic role priming of related verbs in younger and older adults

Lisa A. Edmonds
2007 Brain and Language  
Using a lexical decision task with a short SOA (250ms), this study aims to: 1) replicate agent and patient priming of verbs in younger adults, 2) investigate agent and patient priming of verbs in older  ...  The results of this study replicate previous findings in younger adults (McRae et. al., 2005) showing that agents and patients generate expectancies for related verbs but not for unrelated verbs.  ...  "You will see a number of words and symbols. Please look at everything. When you seen a word in black, read it silently to yourself.  ...

Examining the evidence for an independent semantic analyzer: An ERP study in Spanish

Clare Stroud, Colin Phillips
2012 Brain and Language

No semantic illusions in the "Semantic P600" phenomenon: ERP evidence from Mandarin Chinese

Wing-Yee Chow, Colin Phillips
2013 Brain Research  
, semantically anomalous target words elicited no N400 effects when they were strongly semantically related to the preceding words, regardless of the presence of animacy violations.  ...  This paper evaluates two central pieces of evidence for accounts that propose a syntax-independent semantic composition mechanism, namely, the presence of P600 effects and the absence of N400 effects in  ...  This work was supported in part by NSF grant BCS-0848554 to CP.  ...

Rational Adaptation in Using Conceptual Versus Lexical Information in Adults With Aphasia

Haley C Dresang, Tessa Warren, William D Hula, Michael Walsh Dickey
2021 Frontiers in Psychology  
A primed verb naming task examined the degree of facilitation each participant group received from either conceptual event-related or lexical collocate cues, compared to unrelated baseline cues.  ...  This prediction was examined by assessing the extent to which adults with chronic aphasia due to left-hemisphere stroke rely more on conceptual rather than lexical information during verb retrieval, as  ...  event-related cues but reduce the effects of lexical cue facilitation on verb naming.  ...

What does being a noun or a verb mean?

Jean-Pierre Koenig, Karin Michelson
2020 Proceedings of the International Conference on Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar  
Rather, Oneida inflecting lexical items are subject to two cross-cutting semantic classifications, one that concerns the sort of entities they describe, the other the sort of semantic relation they include  ...  Labels such as 'noun' and 'verb' can still be used for cross-linguistic comparison, as the semantic partition of lexical items corresponds to canonical nouns and verbs according to morphologists and some  ...  target lexical items on the basis both of the sort of entity they describe and the kind of semantic relations included in their semantic content.  ...

On the acquisition of lexical entries

James Pustejovsky
1987 Proceedings of the 25th annual meeting on Association for Computational Linguistics -  
We develop a theory of lexical semantics, the Eztended Aspect Calculus, which together with a ~maxkedness theory" for thematic relations, constrains what a possible word meaning can be.  ...  We then describe an implementation of this model, TULLY, which mirrors the stages of lexical acquisition for children.  ...  All faults and errors are of course my own.  ...

Registers in the System of Semantic Relations in plWordNet

We discuss the position of register and markedness in wordnets with respect to semantic relations, and we list typical values of register.  ...  Lexicalised concepts are represented in wordnets by word-sense pairs. The strength of markedness is one of the factors which influence word use.  ...  Acknowledgment Co-financed by the Polish Ministry of Education and Science, Project CLARIN-PL, and the European Innovative Economy Programme project POIG.01.01.02-14-013/09.  ...

Take a stand on understanding: electrophysiological evidence for stem access in German complex verbs

Eva Smolka, Matthias Gondan, Frank Rösler
2015 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
The lexical representation of complex words in Indo-European languages is generally assumed to depend on semantic compositionality.  ...  Theories of the lexical representation of German words need to incorporate this aspect of language processing in German.  ...  Is there a semantic transparency effect in the lexical representation of morphologically related German words?  ...

1988 Computational Linguistics  
Section 3 briefly mentions some semantic distinc- tions pertaining to the verb in addition to lexical aspect, which PUNDIT does handle.  ...  Lexical aspect is the inherent semantic content of a lexical item pertaining to the temporal structure of the situation it refers to, and thus plays a major role in computing temporal information.  ...
