  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Paperno, Denis; Kruszewski, German; Lazaridou, Angeliki; Pham, Quan Ngoc; Bernardi, Raffaella; Pezzelle, Sandro; Baroni, Marco; Fernandez, Raquel (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2016)
    We introduce LAMBADA, a dataset to evaluate the capabilities of computational models for text understanding by means of a word prediction task. LAMBADA is a collection of narrative passages sharing the characteristic that ...
  • Alsina, 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 ...
  • McNally, Louise, 1965- (Springer, 2011)
    Kennedy (2007) proposes a semantics for positive form adjectives on which the standard for ascribing an adjective A makes the individuals that are A stand out from those that are not. To account for the di erences between ...
  • 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 ...
  • Marimon, Montserrat; Bel Rafecas, Núria; Espeja, Sergio; Seghezzi, Natalia (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2007)
    This paper describes work on the development of an open-source HPSG grammar for Spanish implemented within the LKB system. Following a brief description of the main features of the grammar, we present our approach for ...
  • Kennedy, Christopher; McNally, Louise, 1965- (CSLI Publications, 2005)
    Focusing on the examples of multiple degree modification, this paper argues that the class of degree expressions in English is syntactically and semantically diverse, subdivided both according to the semantic effects of ...
  • Grimm, Scott; McNally, Louise, 1965- (Cascadilla Proceedings Project, 2016)
  • Poch, Marc; Toral, Antonio; Hamon, Olivier; Quochi, Valeria; Bel Rafecas, Núria (ELRA (European Language Resources Association), 2012)
    This paper presents the platform developed in the PANACEA project, a distributed factory that automates the stages involved in the acquisition, production, updating and maintenance of Language Resources required by Machine ...
  • Toral, Antonio; Pecina, Pavel; Way, Andy; Poch, Marc (European Association for Machine Translation, 2011)
    This paper presents a webservice architecture for Statistical Machine Translation aimed at non-technical users. A workflow/neditor allows a user to combine different webservices using a graphical user interface. In the ...
  • Romeo, Lauren; Mendes, Sara; Bel Rafecas, Núria (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2013)
    The work presented here depicts experiments toward the automatic classification of complex-type nominals using distributional information. We conducted two experiments: classifying complex-type nominals as members of ...
  • Necşulescu, Silvia; Bel Rafecas, Núria; Padró, Muntsa; Marimon, Montserrat; Revilla, Eva (ESSLLI, 2011)
    Language Resources are a critical component for Natural Language Processing applications. Throughout the years many resources were manually created for the same task, but with different granularity and coverage information. ...
  • Padró, Muntsa; Bel Rafecas, Núria; Necşulescu, Silvia (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2011)
    Lexical Resources are a critical component for Natural Language Processing applications. However, the high cost of comparing and merging different resources has been a bottleneck to have richer resources with a broad range ...
  • Padró, Muntsa; Bel Rafecas, Núria; Necşulescu, Silvia (ELRA (European Language Resources Association), 2012)
    This article reports on the results of the research done towards the fully automatically merging of lexical resources. Our main goal is to show the generality of the proposed approach, which have been previously applied ...
  • Silberer, Carina; Ponzetto, Simone Paolo (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2010)
    We describe the University of Heidelberg (UHD) system for the Cross-LingualWord Sense Disambiguation SemEval-2010 task (CL-WSD). The system performs CLWSD by applying graph algorithms previously developed for monolingual ...
  • Fomicheva, Marina; Bel Rafecas, Núria; Da Cunha Fanego, Iria; Malinovskiy, Anton (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2015)
    An important limitation of automatic evaluation metrics is that, when comparing Machine Translation (MT) to a human reference, they are often unable to discriminate between acceptable variation and the differences that are ...
  • Villegas, Marta; Bel Rafecas, Núria; Gonzalo, Carlos; Moreno, Amparo; Simelio, Nuria (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2012)
    In this paper we present two real cases, in the fields of discourse analysis of newspapers and communication research which demonstrate the impact of Language Resources (LR) and NLP in the humanities. We describe our ...
  • Romeo, Lauren Michele; Mendes, Sara; Bel Rafecas, Núria (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2012)
    Acquiring lexical information is a complex problem, typically approached by relying on a number of contexts to contribute information for classification. One of the first issues to address in this domain is the determination ...
  • Romeo, Lauren Michele; Mendes, Sara; Bel Rafecas, Núria (Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL), 2014)
    The work presented here addresses the use of unmarked contexts in pattern-based nominal lexical semantic classification. We define unmarked contexts to be the counterposition of the class-indicatory, or marked, contexts. ...
