  • Boleda, Gemma; Bernardi, Raffaella; Fernandez, Raquel; Paperno, Denis (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2015)
    In this position paper we argue that an adequate semantic model must account for language in use, taking into account how discourse context affects the meaning of words and larger linguistic units. Distributional semantic ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Gupta, Abhijeet; Baroni, Marco; Padó, Sebastian (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2015)
    Distributional methods have proven to excel at capturing fuzzy, graded aspects of meaning (Italy is more similar to Spain than to Germany). In contrast, it is difficult to extract the values of more specific attributes of ...
  • Alarcón Martínez, Rodrigo; Sierra Martínez, Gerardo; Bach, Carme, 1971- (Springer, 2009)
    Terminological work aims to identify knowledge about terms in specialised texts in order to compile dictionaries, glossaries or ontologies. Searching for definitions about the terms that terminographers intend to define ...
  • Alarcón Martínez, Rodrigo; Sierra Martínez, Gerardo; Bach, Carme, 1971- (Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Institut Universitari de Lingüística Aplicada (IULA), 2008)
    In this paper we present a pattern-based approach to the automatic extraction of definitional knowledge from specialised Spanish texts. Our methodology is based on the search of definitional verbal patterns to extract ...
  • Toral, Antonio; Poch, Marc; Pecina, Pavel; Thurmair, Gregor (European Association for Machine Translation, 2012)
    This paper presents a novel efficiencybased evaluation of sentence and word aligners. This assessment is critical in order to make a reliable use in industrial scenarios. The evaluation shows that the resources/nrequired ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Vilà-Giménez, Ingrid (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    Recent research has shown that when preschoolers listen to a speaker who is simultaneously making beat gestures, this favors their recall and comprehension of what they have heard and also boosts their narrative performance. ...
  • Cassany, Daniel (Universitat de Barcelona, 1997)
  • Cañada Pujols, Ma. Dolors (Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 1997)
  • Alsina, Àlex (CSLI Publications, 2017)
    The goal of this paper is to explain verbal agreement in Plains Cree (Algonquian), in which verb forms always agree with the most prominent argument with respect to person and other referential features, but adopt either ...
  • Gehrke, Berit; McNally, Louise, 1965- (Cambridge Medical Publications, 2011)
  • McNally, Louise, 1965-; Gehrke, Berit (Cornell University, Linguistic Society of America, 2011)
  • Kennedy, Christopher; McNally, Louise, 1965- (Cornell University, 1999)
  • Silberer, Carina; Pinkal, Manfred (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2018)
    We address the task of visual semantic role labeling (vSRL), the identification of the participants of a situation or event in a visual scene, and their labeling with their semantic relations to the event or situation. We ...
  • Prieto Vives, Pilar, 1965-; Baills, Florence; Zhang, Yuan (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2018)
    Previous research has shown that rhythmic training enhances phonological speech processing (e.g., [1, 2, 3, 4]). Yet little is known about whether rhythmic training can also help to improve pronunciation in a second language ...
  • Bel Rafecas, Núria (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2010)
    We propose a strategy to reduce the impact of the sparse data problem in the tasks of lexical information acquisition based on the observation of linguistic cues. It justifies that the uncertainty created by missing values, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Alsina, Àlex (CSLI Publications, 2005)
  • Gulordava, Kristina; Aina, Laura; Boleda, Gemma (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2018)
    Recent state-of-the-art neural language models share the representations of words given by the input and output mappings. We propose a simple modification to these architectures that decouples the hidden state from the ...
  • Martínez Alonso, Héctor; Sandford Pedersen, Bolette; Bel Rafecas, Núria (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2011)
    The following work describes a method to automatically classify the sense selection of the complex type Location/Organization –which depends on regular polysemy– using shallow features, as well as a way to increase the ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Gupta, Abhijeet; Padó, Sebastian (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2017)
    Instances (“Mozart”) are ontologically distinct from concepts or classes (“composer”). Natural language encompasses both, but instances have received comparatively little attention in distributional semantics. Our results ...
