Typology of Comparatives

Satomi Ito
2008 Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation  
In this paper I investigate various languages in the Pacific Asia region and discuss the difference in comparative construction in the framework of formal semantics.  ...  I suggest two parameters to distinguish the four language groups and propose a new typology of comparative construction.  ...  Adjectives Degree Abstraction Maximization English-type syntax syntax Chinese-type lexicon lexicon Japanese-type lexicon syntax Dom-type none none 22nd Pacific Asia Conference on Language,Information  ...

Between Reading Time and Information Structure

Masayuki Asahara
2017 Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation  
We overlaid the reading time annotation BCCWJ-EyeTrack and an information structure annotation on the Balanced Corpus of Contemporary Written Japanese.  ...  Statistical analysis based on a mixed linear model showed that the "specificity," "sentience," and "commonness" of the Japanese information structure affect the reading time.  ...  This work was also supported by JSPS KAKENHI Grant Number JP25284083 and JP17H00917.  ...

On Japanese Desiderative Constructions

Akira Ohtani, Mark Steedman
2008 Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation  
Building on the proposed analysis, we also discuss the difference between the two types of desideratives in terms of adverbial modification and passivizability.  ...  This paper describes desiderative constructions in Japanese with the main focus on ta(i) 'want' desideratives.  ...  information about the stem verb is supplied.  ...

Chains in Syntax and Morphology

Thomas Groß
2010 Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation  
This paper argues for the existence of a deeper and more primitive structural unit of syntax and morphology than the constituent.  ...  Evidence suggests that chains constitute the fundamental structural relationship between syntactic and morphological units, and that constituents are just a special subset of chains.  ...  If the aforesaid holds, research in syntax and morphology, but also in language acquisition and computer-based language modeling, should start to at least ponder the possible existence of a more central  ...

Developing Database Semantics as a Computational Model

Kiyong Lee
2000 Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation  
Both Hausser [1] and Lee [2][3] proposed Database Semantics as a computational model for natural language semantics that makes use of a database management system, DBMS.  ...  natural language processing can be efficiently utilized as part of interface or application programs for a relational database management system, RDBMS.  ...  In order to represent these pieces of information in a EVENT-RELATED STATEMENTS In natural language, each verb must carry information on tense.  ...

Japanese Bare Nouns as Weak Indefinites

Keiko Yoshida
2005 Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation  
Japanese Bare Nouns (JBNs) appear to behave like indefinites in some contexts, and mass nouns in some other contexts.  ...  For example, when accomplishment verbs have JBNs as their theme, they are modified by both in-adverbs and for-adverbs.  ...  I am also grateful to John Whitman, Brent de Chene, Tomoyuki Yoshida, and an anonymous abstract reviewer of PACLIC 19.  ...

Secondary Predicates in Native and Nonnative Grammars

English Morphological Analysis with Machine-learned Rules

Xuri Tang
2006 Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation  
This paper expounds an algorithm for morphological analysis of English language. The algorithm consists of two closely related components: morphological rule learning and morphological analyzing.  ...  The procedure of morphological analysis considers two types of ambiguities: intersectional ambiguity and combinatory ambiguity.  ...  The fourth one seeks for an analysis for a language which is the most concise and consequently boils down to a set of rules for the language.  ...

Predicative multi-word expressions in Persian

Jens Fleischhauer
2020 Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation  
Persian, like many other Asian languages, licenses the use of bare nouns in object position.  ...  Such sequences are often treated as multiword expressions (compound verbs/light verb constructions, and pseudo-incorporation constructions).  ...  I like to thank Mozhgan Neisani for help with the language data.  ...

Predictivity vs. Stipulativity in the Lexicon

Cornelia Maria Verspoor
1998 Pacific Asia Conference on Language, Information and Computation  
Pragmatic reasoning and linguistic conventionalisation are argued to influence the structure of information in the lexicon.  ...  The conclusions drawn from this analysis emphasise that the balance of information in the lexicon must be carefully considered.  ...  Thanks are also due to Alex Lascarides and an anonymous reviewer for helpful comments on previous drafts of this paper.  ...
