FRANCIS CORNISH
2017 English Language and Linguistics  
The goal of this article is to uncover the system underlying three types of English relative clauses, and to characterise their distinctive uses in discourse: NP-integrated ones, namely restrictive and  ...  The area at issue is central, since understanding the functioning of these constructions requires reference to the fundamental interface between grammar (language system) and discourse (language use).  ...  Distribution and functions In English too, RMs and relative (wh-)pronouns may be distinguished: that in English is arguably not a relative pronoun, 8 but simply marks a departure from and (indirectly)  ...

Stephen Tratz, Clare Voss, Jamal Laoudi
2014 Proceedings of the 3rd Workshop on Hybrid Approaches to Machine Translation (HyTra)  
The system achieves 91.9 F1 and 77.8 F1 on Arabic Treebank data when using gold standard parses and automatic parses, respectively.  ...  We then present what is, to the best of our knowledge, the first system for automatic identification of resumptive pronouns.  ...  Another natural next step is to train the system using automatically generated parse, partof-speech tag, and clitic segmentation information instead of gold standard annotation to see if this produces  ...

Comparison of Coreference Resolvers for Deep Syntax Translation

Michal Novák, Dieke Oele, Gertjan van Noord
2015 Proceedings of the Second Workshop on Discourse in Machine Translation  
We compare multiple coreference resolvers for English in terms of how they affect the quality of pronoun translation in English-Czech and English-Dutch machine translation systems with deep transfer.  ...  We examine which pronouns in the target language depend on anaphoric information, and design rules that take advantage of this information.  ...  The following rules are used: • Impose agreement in gender and number for personal, possessive, and relative pronouns translated from English pronouns it and its as well as English relative pronouns. 6  ...

English relative clauses in a cross-Germanic perspective

Julia Bacskai-Atkari
2020 Nordlyd: Tromsø University Working Papers on Language & Linguistics  
The differences from other Germanic languages (both West Germanic and Scandinavian) are primarily due to the historical changes affecting the case and gender system in English more generally.  ...  The loss of case and gender on the original singular neuter relative pronoun facilitated its reanalysis as a complementiser.  ...  The system was weakened during the Middle Dutch period and 27 In (15), the antecedent of the gap in the relative clause (the head noun) is plural; nevertheless, the verb in the relative clause shows singular  ...
