  • Fomicheva, Marina; Bel Rafecas, Núria; Specia, Lucia; Cunha Fanego, Iria da; Malinovsiy, Anton (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2016)
    The vast majority of Machine Translation (MT) evaluation approaches are based on the idea that the closer the MT output is to a human reference translation, the higher its quality. While translation quality has two ...
  • Hunter, Julie; Asher, Nicholas (Cornell University, Linguistic Society of America, 2016)
    While not-at-issue (NAI) content is typically introduced via particular syntactic constructions, accounts of NAI content that only consider the syntax/semantics interface face empirical difficulties. We develop a new ...
  • Hunter, Julie; Hardt, Daniel; Asher, Nicholas (Cornell University, Linguistic Society of America, 2013)
    This paper compares two views on the status of indices in syntactic and logical representations. On a structural view, indices are syntactic formants on a par with node labels and phrase bracketings, and are thus a part ...
  • McNally, Louise, 1965-; Grimm, Scott (Cornell University, Linguistic Society of America, 2015)
    The nature of -ing nominals has been widely debated since the early days of generative grammar (e.g. Lees 1960, Chomsky 1970), and at least since Vendler (1967), -ing forms also have played a central role in debates over ...
  • McNally, Louise, 1965-; Gehrke, Berit (Cornell University, Linguistic Society of America, 2011)
  • Marimon, Montserrat; Vivaldi, J. (Jorge), 1952-; Bel Rafecas, Núria (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2017)
    This paper presents the IULA Spanish Clinical Record Corpus, a corpus of 3,194 sentences extracted from anonymized clinical records and manually annotated with negation markers and their scope. The corpus was conceived ...

  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex (CSLI Publications, 2009)
    Evidence is reviewed that requires abandoning verb-preposition reanalysis in the derivation of prepositional passives (P-passives). An alternative is proposed in which P-passives are a type of raising construction, where ...
  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex (CSLI Publications, 2010)
    This paper argues for the claim that the definite article (d-article) in Catalan is a bound morpheme that adds its information about grammatical category to that of the host it forms a compound with. In this way, ...
  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex; Vigo, Eugenio M. (CSLI Publications, 2014)
    In this paper we analyze the phenomenon of copular inversion (CI) in Catalan, which consists in the copula not agreeing with its subject but with its complement. We claim this is due to the idea that in CI-languages verbs ...
  • Quer, Josep, 1965-; Lekakou, Marika (Modern Greek Dialects and Linguistic Theory, 2016)
    The topic of this paper is the realization of subjunctive mood in Griko. On the basis of the distribution of verbal forms inside na-clauses, we put forward the claim that, unlike Standard Modern Greek, in Griko subjunctive ...
  • Vanrell, Maria del Mar; Armstrong, Meghan Elizabeth; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2014)
    The overarching goal of this paper is to advance on the understanding of how evidential meanings are expressed in natural languages. Specifically, we aimed to investigate what type of meaning was encoded in yes-no questions ...
  • Esteve Gibert, Núria; Borràs Comes, Joan Manel, 1984-; Swerts, Marc; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2014)
    There is an increasing consensus to regard gesture and speech as parts of an integrated communication system, in part because of the findings related to their temporal coordination at different levels. In general, results ...
  • Esteve Gibert, Núria; Pons Gimeno, Ferran; Bosch, Laura; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2014)
    This study explores the temporal coordination between gesture and speech by addressing two main questions: (1) Are speakers sensitive to the misalignment between gesture prominence and prosodic prominence? (2) Is this ...
  • Armstrong, Meghan Elizabeth; Esteve Gibert, Núria; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2014)
    In this study, we examine how 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old Catalanacquiring children are able to make use of audio (intonational) and visual (facial gesture) modalities in the comprehension of speaker disbelief, as well as the ...
  • van Maastricht, Lieke; Krahmer, Emiel; Swerts, Marc; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2016)
    This study investigates the acquisition of second language (L2) rhythm by speakers of Dutch and Spanish, two languages that traditionally are considered to be rhythmically different. Specifically, it investigates whether ...
  • González Fuente, Santiago; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Noveck, Ira A. (International Speech Communication Association, 2016)
    Research on verbal irony has found that prosodic features such as pitch range expansion, syllable lengthening, and specific intonational contours are common prosodic resources that languages use to mark irony in speech. ...
  • Hübscher, Iris; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Wagner, Laura (International Speech Communication Association, 2016)
    While children’s acquisition of lexically encoded politeness formulas has been investigated to a certain extent, little is known about their sensitivity to prosody and facial expressions as cues to politeness. The goal of ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Roseano, Paolo (International Speech Communication Association, 2016)
    For years linguists have noted that intonation patterns encode similar meanings as sentence-final discourse particles across languages. A question that arises is what is the division of labor between the two and whether ...
  • Kushch, Olga; Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965- (International Speech Communication Association, 2016)
    Research in audiovisual prosody has shown that typically beat gestures are temporally integrated with prominent positions in speech (e.g., [1, 2]). There is independent evidence that both prosodic prominence (e.g., pitch ...
