Recent Submissions

  • Gulordava, Kristina; Brochhagen, Thomas; Boleda, Gemma (Cognitive Science Society, 2020)
    Children’s tendency to associate novel words with novel referents has been taken to reflect a bias toward mutual exclusivity. This tendency may be advantageous both as (1) an ad-hoc referent selection heuristic to single ...
  • Aina, Laura; Brochhagen, Thomas; Boleda, Gemma (Cognitive Science Society, 2020)
    How a word is interpreted depends on the context it appears in. We study word interpretation leveraging deep language models, tracing the contribution and interaction of two sources of information that have been shown to ...
  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex; Yang, Fengrong (CSLI Publications, 2019)
    This paper aims to present a theory of expletives1 in English within LFG in which the distribution of expletives follows from general principles and from the lexical entries of the relevant expletives. Consequently, ...
  • Alsina i Keith, Àlex; Yang, Fengrong (CSLI Publications, 2018)
    The goal of this paper is to analyze the behavior of the single direct argument of intransitive verbs in Catalan, including its encoding as a grammatical function, verbal agreement, case assignment, and expression by means ...
  • Serbina, Tatiana; Bisiada, Mario; Neumann, Stella (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2021)
    A range of studies have pointed to the importance of considering the influence of editors in studies of translated language. Those studies have concentrated on particular features, which allowed them to study those features ...
  • da Cunha Fanego, Iria; Montané March, M. Amor; Hysa, Luis (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2017)
    This article describes an automatic system for writing specialized texts in Spanish. The arText prototype is a free online text editor that includes different types of linguistic information. It is designed for a variety ...
  • Westera, Matthijs; Amidei, Jacopo; Mayol, Laia (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2020)
    We take a close look at a recent dataset of TED-talks annotated with the questions they implicitly evoke, TED-Q (Westera et al., 2020). We test to what extent the relation between a discourse and the questions it evokes ...
  • Westera, Matthijs; Mayol, Laia; Rohde, Hannah (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2020)
    We present a new dataset of TED-talks annotated with the questions they evoke and, where available, the answers to these questions. Evoked questions represent a hitherto mostly unexplored type of linguistic data, which ...
  • Silberer, Carina; Zarrieß, Sina; Westera, Matthijs; Boleda, Gemma (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2020)
    We release ManyNames v2 (MN v2), a verified version of an object naming dataset that contains dozens of valid names per object for 25K images. We analyze issues in the data collection method originally employed, standard ...
  • Silberer, Carina; Zarrieß, Sina; Boleda, Gemma (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2020)
    People choose particular names for objects, such as dog or puppy for a given dog. Object naming has been studied in Psycholinguistics, but has received relatively little attention in Computational Linguistics. We review ...
  • Sorodoc, Ionut-Teodor; Gulordava, Kristina; Boleda, Gemma (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2020)
    Language models keep track of complex information about the preceding context – including, e.g., syntactic relations in a sentence. We investigate whether they also capture information beneficial for resolving pronominal ...
  • Marimon, Montserrat; Fisas Elizalde, Beatriz; Bel Rafecas, Núria; Arias Badia, Blanca; Vázquez, Silvia; Vivaldi, J. (Jorge), 1952-; Villegas, Marta; Lorente Casafont, Mercè (ELRA (European Language Resources Association), 2012)
    This paper describes on-going work for the construction of a new treebank for Spanish, The IULA Treebank. This new resource will contain about 60,000 richly annotated sentences as an extension of the already existing IULA ...
  • Arias Badia, Blanca; Bel Rafecas, Núria; Fisas Elizalde, Beatriz; Lorente, Mercè; Marimon, Montserrat; Marimon, Montserrat; Morell, Carlos; Vázquez, Silvia; Vivaldi, J. (Jorge), 1952- (ELRA (European Language Resources Association), 2014)
    This paper presents the IULA Spanish LSP Treebank, a dependency treebank of over 41,000 sentences of different domains (Law, Economy, Computing Science, Environment, and Medicine), developed in the framework of the European ...
  • Arias Badia, Blanca; Bel Rafecas, Núria; Fomicheva, Marina; Larrea Mendizabal, Imanol; Lorente, Mercè; Marimon, Montserrat; Milà-Garcia, Alba; Vivaldi, J. (Jorge), 1952-; Padró, Muntsa (ELRA (European Language Resources Association), 2014)
    We present the results of the experiment of bootstrapping a Treebank for Catalan by using a Dependency Parser trained with Spanish sentences. In order to save time and cost, our approach was to profit from the typological ...
  • McNally, Louise, 1965-; Gehrke, Berit (Universidad del País Vasco, 2014)
    Adverbially-interpreted temporal frequency adjectives (FAs) such as frequent, sporadic, and daily, are usually restricted to modifying event-denoting nominals (e.g. The house underwent frequent cleanings = Frequently, the ...
  • Baroni, Marco; Kilgarriff, Adam (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2006)
    The Web contains vast amounts of linguistic data. One key issue for linguists and language technologists is how to access it. Commercial search engines give highly compromised access. An alternative is to crawl the Web ...
  • Baroni, Marco; Lenci, Alessandro (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2009)
    Mitchell et al. (2008) demonstrated that corpus-extracted models of semantic knowledge can predict neural activation patterns recorded using fMRI. This could be a very powerful technique for evaluating conceptual models ...
  • Ritter, Samuel; Long, Cotie; Paperno, Denis; Baroni, Marco; Botvinick, Matthew; Goldberg, Adele (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2015)
    Complex interactions among the meanings of words are important factors in the function that maps word meanings to phrase meanings. Recently, compositional distributional semantics models (CDSM) have been designed with the ...
  • Pham, Nghia The; Kruszewski, German; Lazaridou, Angeliki; Baroni, Marco (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2015)
    We introduce C-PHRASE, a distributional semantic model that learns word representations by optimizing context prediction for phrases at all levels in a syntactic tree, from single words to full sentences. C-PHRASE outperforms ...
  • Lazaridou, Angeliki; Dinu, Georgiana; Baroni, Marco (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2015)
    Zero-shot methods in language, vision and other domains rely on a cross-space mapping function that projects vectors from the relevant feature space (e.g., visualfeature-based image representations) to a large semantic ...
