Uniform Surprisal at the Level of Discourse Relations: Negation Markers and Discourse Connective Omission
International Conference on Computational Semantics
About half of the discourse relations annotated in Penn Discourse Treebank (Prasad et al., 2008) are not explicitly marked using a discourse connective. But we do not have extensive theories of when or why a discourse relation is marked explicitly or when the connective is omitted. Asr and Demberg (2012a) have suggested an information-theoretic perspective according to which discourse connectives are more likely to be omitted when they are marking a relation that is expected or predictable.dblp:conf/iwcs/AsrD15 fatcat:qohcd5v2ejfu5dili75argdz7m
