  • Boleda, Gemma; Bernardi, Raffaella; Fernández, 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 ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Padó, Sebastian; Pham, Nghia The; Baroni, Marco (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2017)
    Reference is the crucial property of language that allows us to connect linguistic expressions to the world. Modeling it requires handling both continuous and discrete aspects of meaning. Data-driven models excel at the ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Sorodoc, Ionut-Teodor; Lazaridou, Angeliki; Herbelot, Aurélie; Pezzelle, Sandro; Bernardi, Raffaella (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2016)
    In this paper, we investigate whether a neural network model can learn the meaning of natural language quantifiers (no,some and all) from their use in visual contexts. We show that memory networks perform well in this ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Baroni, Marco; Padó, Sebastian (Springer, 2018)
    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 ...
  • 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 ...
