  • 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 ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Baroni, Marco; Padó, Sebastian (2017)
    One of the most basic functions of language is to refer to objects in a shared scene. Modeling reference with continuous representations is challenging because it requires individuation, i.e., tracking and distinguishing ...
  • Ginovart Cid, Clara (AsLing, The International Association for Advancement in Language Tehcnology, 2018)
    As more language service providers (LSP) are including post-editing (PE) of machine translation (MT) in their workflow, we see how studies on quality evaluation of MT output become more and more important. We report findings ...
  • Llach, Sílvia (Universitat de GironaUniversitat de Girona. Departament de Didàctiques Específiques, 2011)
    Aquest taller té per objectiu mostrar les activitats que es poden fer a l’aula per treballar la consciència fonològica, especialment la consciència fonèmica. La consciència fonèmica és un dels dos grans predictors de la ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Alsina, 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, ...
  • 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. ...
