Here we analyze some modern methods of forensic linguistics.  ... 

Effects of syntactic category assignment on lexical ambiguity resolution in reading: An eye movement analysis

2003 Memory & Cognition  
of a biased ambiguous word (Experiment 1) and when prior context was semantically neutral as to the intended interpretation of a balanced ambiguous word (Experiment 2).  ...  These data indicate that, in the absence of syntactic ambiguity, syntactic-category information mediates the semantic-resolution process.  ...  In Experiment 1, the context was semantically and syntactically consistent with the subordinate interpretation of the biased ambiguous word, and the standard lexical-semantic ambiguity effect was eliminated  ...

Semantic-head based resolution of scopal ambiguities

Björn Gambäck, Johan Bos
1998 Proceedings of the 36th annual meeting on Association for Computational Linguistics -  
The algorithm has been implemented and tested in a large-scale system and fared quite well: 28% of the utterances were ambiguous, 80% of these were correctly interpreted, leaving errors in only 5.7% of  ...  We introduce an algorithm for scope resolution in underspecified semantic representations. Scope preferences are suggested on the basis of semantic argument structure.  ...  The key idea is to have a common representation for all the possible interpretations of an ambiguous expression, as in Alshawi et al. (1991) .  ...

They will aware the ESL learners and the instructors to include anaphora resolution strategies in teaching English ambiguous sentences.  ...  The present study investigated the anaphora resolution in English ambiguous sentences.  ...  Discourse ambiguity resolution demands the processing of the needs of a shared knowledge or a shared world and its interpretation is carried out according to the context (Tang, 2016) .  ...

Practice makes perfect: Training the interpretation of emotional ambiguity

Jessica L. Clifton, Sophie Hedley, Emily Mountier, Boglarka Tiszai, Gina M. Grimshaw
2015 Cognition & Emotion  
In three experiments, we systematically manipulated the nature of the training in order to discriminate between emotional priming and ambiguity resolution accounts of training effects.  ...  In a subsequent semantic priming task they demonstrated an interpretation bias, in that they were faster to identify relatedness of targets that were associated with the training-congruent meaning of an  ...  The overarching aim of our experiments was to distinguish between emotional priming and ambiguity resolution accounts of CBM-I, by determining the role of ambiguity resolution in changing the online interpretation  ...

Exactly two things to learn from modeling scope ambiguity resolution: Developmental continuity and numeral semantics

K.J. Savinelli, Greg Scontras, Lisa Pearl
2018 Proceedings of the 8th Workshop on Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics (CMCL 2018)  
Behavioral data suggest that both children and adults struggle to access the inverse interpretation of scopally-ambiguous utterances in certain contexts.  ...  To determine whether the causes of both child and adult difficulty are similar, we extend an existing computational model of children's scope ambiguity resolution in context.  ...  We model ambiguity resolution as pragmatic inference over an underspecified utterance semantics (i.e., the interpretation variable i).  ...
