Robust Probabilistic Predictive Syntactic Processing [article]

Brian Roark
2001 arXiv   pre-print
The parser builds fully connected derivations incrementally, in a single pass from left-to-right across the string.  ...  The basic parser and conditional probability models are presented, and empirical results are provided for its parsing accuracy on both newspaper text and spontaneous telephone conversations.  ...  A derivation that always replaces the rightmost non-terminal is called rightmost, and a derivation that always replaces the leftmost nonterminal is called leftmost.  ...

6 — Program transformations [chapter]

1981 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Franc Grootjen and Frank Nusselder have put tremendous effort in the successful compilation of the Grammar Workbench (Chapter 7).  ...  We received kind help from Job Honig, Theo Vosse, John Carroll, and Hans de Vreught in finding a practical grammar for testing our algorithms from Chapter 4 on.  ...  The second part constitutes the actual calculation of the affixes, and the resolution of ambiguities by means of interaction with the user.  ...

Automatic generation of weather forecast texts using comprehensive probabilistic generation-space models

ANJA BELZ
2007 Natural Language Engineering  
Two important recent trends in nlg are (i) probabilistic techniques and (ii) comprehensive approaches that move away from traditional strictly modular and sequential models.  ...  The generators were evaluated in terms of output quality, development time and computational efficiency against (i) human forecasters, (ii) a traditional handcrafted pipelined nlg system, and (iii) a halogen-style  ...  Many thanks to John Carroll, Roger Evans, Gerald Gazdar, Daniel Paiva, Ehud Anja Belz Reiter, Kees van Deemter, David Weir and in particular the anonymous nle reviewers, for very helpful comments.  ...

Co-training an Unsupervised Constituency Parser with Weak Supervision [article]

Nickil Maveli, Shay B. Cohen
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In addition, we show the effectiveness of our architecture by evaluating on treebanks for Chinese (CTB) and Japanese (KTB) and achieve new state-of-the-art results.  ...  Through self-training and co-training with the two classifiers, we show that the interplay between them helps improve the accuracy of both, and as a result, effectively parse.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank the anonymous reviewers, Alexandra Birch, Frank Keller, Ankur Parikh, Marcio Fonseca, Ronald Cardenas, Zheng Zhao and Yftah Ziser for their feedback on  ...

Deriving lexical and syntactic expectation-based measures for psycholinguistic modeling via incremental top-down parsing

Brian Roark, Asaf Bachrach, Carlos Cardenas, Christophe Pallier
2009 Proceedings of the 2009 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing Volume 1 - EMNLP '09   unpublished
We also present an approximation to entropy measures that would otherwise be intractable to calculate for a grammar of that size.  ...  In this paper, we present novel methods for calculating separate lexical and syntactic surprisal measures from a single incremental parser using a lexicalized PCFG.  ...  Any opinions, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this publication are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NSF.  ...

Why is language unique to humans?

Jacques Mehler, Marina Nespor, Mohinish Shukla, Marcela Peña
2006 Novartis Foundation symposium  
This suggests that neuroscience and linguistics converge on the view that, to a large extent, language acquisition arises due to our genetic endowment.  ...  Our research has also shown how statistical dependencies and the ability to draw structural generalizations are basic processes that interact intimately.  ...  68/2002 and by the Regione Friuli-Venezia Giulia (L.R. 3/98).  ...

The Now-or-Never bottleneck: A fundamental constraint on language

Morten H. Christiansen, Nick Chater
2015 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
This is "Chunk-and-Pass" processing. Similarly, language learning must also occur in the here and now, which implies that language acquisition is learning to process, rather than inducing, a grammar.  ...  Chunk-and-Pass processing also helps explain a variety of core properties of language, including its multilevel representational structure and duality of patterning.  ...  The greater memory capacities and ability to use contextual and other pragmatic cues to infer meanings, may relax the Now-or-Never bottleneck, nudging grammars toward morphological simplification with  ...

Mechanisms for interaction: Syntax as procedures for online interactive meaning building

Ruth Kempson, Stergios Chatzikyriakidis, Ronnie Cann
2016 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
We demonstrate that, with such formulation, syntactic, semantic, and morpho-syntactic dependencies are all analysable as grounded in their potential for interaction.  ...  We argue that to reflect participant interactivity in conversational dialogue, the Christiansen & Chater (C&C) perspective needs a formal grammar framework capturing word-by-word incrementality  ...  The greater memory capacities and ability to use contextual and other pragmatic cues to infer meanings, may relax the Now-or-Never bottleneck, nudging grammars toward morphological simplification with  ...
