Modelling and Evaluation of Lexical and Syntactic Alignment with a Priming-Based Microplanner [chapter]

Hendrik Buschmeier, Kirsten Bergmann, Stefan Kopp
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Using a priming-based model of interactive alignment, it is flexible enough to model the alignment behaviour of human speakers to a high degree.  ...  We demonstrate that SPUD prime can account for lexical as well as syntactic alignment and present an evaluation on corpora of task-oriented dialogue that were collected in two experiments designed to investigate  ...  We thank Petra Weiß for making the 'Jigsaw Map Game' corpora available and Mariët Theune for some very helpful comments on the draft of this chapter.  ...

Entrainment in Pedestrian Direction Giving: How Many Kinds of Entrainment? [chapter]

Zhichao Hu, Gabrielle Halberg, Carolynn R. Jimenez, Marilyn A. Walker
2016 Signals and Communication Technology  
PERSONAGE-PRIMED can entrain to the user's referring expressions, tense-modality selection, verb and noun lexical selection, hedge and cue word choice, and syntactic template selection, or any combination  ...  In terms of language use, they adapt to their partners both lexically and syntactically, by using the same referring expressions or sentence structure.  ...  The ArtWalk corpus was collected in collaboration with Prof. Jean E. Fox Tree, UCSC. Proceedings of 5th International Workshop on Spoken Dialog Systems Napa, January [17] [18] [19] [20] 2014  ...

Modeling Linguistic and Personality Adaptation for Natural Language Generation

Zhichao Hu, Jean Fox Tree, Marilyn Walker
2018 Proceedings of the 19th Annual SIGdial Meeting on Discourse and Dialogue  
We show that our measure meets criteria for validity, and that adaptation varies according to corpora and task, speaker, and the set of features used to model it.  ...  Theories of personality aim to explain these shared patterns, and studies have shown that many linguistic cues are correlated with personality traits.  ...  Acknowledgement This research was supported by NSF CISE RI EA-GER #IIS-1044693, NSF CISE CreativeIT #IIS-1002921, NSF CHS #IIS-1115742, Nuance Foundation Grant SC-14-74, and auxiliary REU supplements.  ...

An alignment-capable microplanner for natural language generation

Hendrik Buschmeier, Kirsten Bergmann, Stefan Kopp
2009 Proceedings of the 12th European Workshop on Natural Language Generation - ENLG '09   unpublished
Using a priming-based model of interactive alignment, it is flexible enough to model the alignment behaviour of human speakers to a high degree.  ...  Alignment of interlocutors is a well known psycholinguistic phenomenon of great relevance for dialogue systems in general and natural language generation in particular.  ...  Center 673 'Alignment in Communication'.  ...

Refer, Reuse, Reduce: Generating Subsequent References in Visual and Conversational Contexts [article]

Ece Takmaz, Mario Giulianelli, Sandro Pezzelle, Arabella Sinclair, Raquel Fernández
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Our experiments and analyses show that the model produces better, more effective referring utterances than a model not grounded in the dialogue context, and generates subsequent references that exhibit  ...  We propose a generation model that produces referring utterances grounded in both the visual and the conversational context.  ...  In training our models, we use the Adam optimizer (Kingma and Ba, 2015) to minimize the Cross Entropy Loss with sum reduction. 19 We experimented with learning rate (0.001, 0.0001, 0.00001), dimensions  ...

Acoustic-Prosodic Entrainment in Human-Human and Human-Computer Dialogue

Rivka Levitan
In the second part of the thesis, we describe a method for flexibly and dynamically entraining a TTS voice to multiple acoustic-prosodic features of a user's input utterances, and show in an exploratory  ...  Entrainment (sometimes called adaptation or alignment) is the tendency of human speakers to adapt to or imitate characteristics of their interlocutors' behavior.  ...  ., 2009] introduce a microplanner for natural language generation that uses a priming-based model of entrainment.  ...

The production of prosodic focus and contour in dialogue

Nicholas John Youd
A model of an information-providing agent in is proposed, based on an analysis of a corpus of spontaneous dialogues.  ...  Computer programs designed to converse with humans in natural language provide a framework against which to test supra-sentential theories of language production and interpretation.  ...  The former consists of meaning-based representations of lexical items, assigned to functional syntactic roles; their function is to control the elaboration of syntactic structure.  ...
