  • Westera, Matthijs; Boleda, Gemma (University of Konstanz, 2020)
    We take a closer look at van Tiel et al.’s (2016) experimental results on diversity in scalar inference rates. In contrast to their finding that semantic similarity had no significant effect on scalar inference rates, ...
  • Mayol, Laia; Boleda, Gemma; Badía, Teresa (Springer, 2005)
    This paper describes a methodology aimed at grouping Catalan verbs according to their syntactic behavior. Our goal is to acquire a small number of basic classes with a high level of accuracy, using minimal resources. ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Cuadros Oller, Montse; España Bonet, Cristina; Padró, Lluís; Melero i Nogués, Maite; Quixal Martínez, Martí; Rodríguez, Carlos (Universitat de Barcelona, 2009)
    El processament computacional de la llengua abraça qualsevol activitat relacionada amb la creació, la gestió i la utilització de tecnologia i de recursos lingüístics. En el pla científic, aquesta activitat és central en ...
  • Westera, Matthijs; Gupta, Abhijee; Boleda, Gemma; Padó, Sebastian (Wiley, 2021)
    Cognitive scientists have long used distributional semantic representations of categories. The predominant approach uses distributional representations of category-denoting nouns, such as “city” for the category city. We ...
  • Mädebach, Andreas; Torubarova, Ekaterina; Gualdoni, Eleonora; Boleda, Gemma (Cognitive Science Society, 2022)
    We explore contextual adaptation of referring expressions with respect to referential ambiguity and communicative intention. We focus not only on whether people adapt, but also on how by contrasting lexical specification ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Herbelot, Aurélie (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2016)
    Formal Semantics and Distributional Semantics are two very influential semantic frameworks in Computational Linguistics. Formal Semantics is based on a symbolic tradition and centered around the inferential properties of ...
  • Boleda, Gemma; Schulte im Walde, Sabine; Badia i Cardús, Antoni (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2012)
    We present a study on the automatic acquisition of semantic classes for Catalan adjectives from distributional and morphological information, with particular emphasis on polysemous adjectives. The aim is to distinguish ...
  • Brochhagen, Thomas; Boleda, Gemma (Elsevier, 2022)
    Lexical ambiguity is pervasive in language, and often systematic. For instance, the Spanish word dedo can refer to a toe or a finger, that is, these two meanings colexify in Spanish; and they do so as well in over one ...
  • Gualdoni, Eleonora; Brochhagen, Thomas; Mädebach, Andreas; Boleda, Gemma (Cognitive Science Society, 2022)
    Speakers often use different names to refer to the same entity (e.g., “woman” vs. “tennis player”). We here explore factors that affect naming variation for visually presented objects. We analyze a large dataset of object ...
  • Corral, Álvaro; Boleda, Gemma; Ferrer-i-Cancho, Ramon (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2015)
    Zipf’s law is a fundamental paradigm in the statistics of written and spoken natural language as well as in other communication systems. We raise the question of the elementary units for which Zipf’s law should hold in the ...
