  • Crowgey, Joshua David (2013-04-17)
    This thesis presents a revision of the LinGO Grammar Matrix library for sentential negation along with supporting arguments from syntactic and typological literature. A cross-linguistic model of representations in HPSG ...
  • Lushtak, Sergei A. (2013-04-17)
    This thesis describes a system which clusters the words of a given lexicon into conflation sets (sets of morphologically related words). The word clustering is based on clustering of suffixes, which, in turn, is based on ...
  • Moran, Steven Paul (2013-04-17)
    In this dissertation, I investigate the linguistic and technological challenges involved in creating a cross-linguistic data set to undertake phonological typology. I then address the question of whether more sophisticated, ...
  • Miller, Julia Colleen (2013-07-25)
    This dissertation is an investigation of acoustic properties of lexical tone in two dialects of Dane-zaa (Athabaskan). The noteworthy mirror-image tone systems of the H-marked Doig and L-marked Halfway dialects provide a ...
  • Gracheva, Varya (2013-07-25)
    Markers of contrast in Russian: A corpus-based study
  • Pozen, Zinaida (2013-07-25)
    Accurate parse ranking is essential for deep linguistic processing applications and is one of the classic problems for academic research in NLP. Despite significant advances, there remains a big need for improvement, ...
  • Puthuval, Sarala (2013-07-25)
    The standard analysis of Modern Mongolian vowel harmony is as rightward spreading of the features [pharyngeal] and [round] starting from the first syllable of the word. Because Mongolian has exclusively suffixing morphology ...
  • Mills, Chad (2013-07-25)
    Board game rulebooks offer a convenient scenario for extracting a systematic logical structure from a passage of text since the mechanisms by which board game pieces interact must be fully specified in the rulebook and ...
  • McCloy, Daniel Robert (2013-07-25)
    This thesis concerns the relationship between speech intelligibility and speech prosody, and the role that speech prosody plays in the perceptual advantage that occurs when listening to a familiar talker. A parallel corpus ...
  • Lingren, Todd Gregory (2013-11-14)
    <bold>Introduction:</bold> In pharmacotherapy cancer clinical trials patients receive frequent outpatient evaluation and monthly inpatient evaluation, as required by the protocol or institutional guidelines. Detection of ...
  • Robinson, William Stephen (2013-11-14)
    This thesis provides felicity conditions for counterfactual conditionals containing proper names in which essential changes to an individual are counterfactually posited using contrastive focus in either the antecedent or ...
  • McCloy, Daniel Robert (2014-01-27)
    This thesis offers a semantic account of implicitly relational predicates — adjectival or nominal predicates such as to be popular and to be a wanted man. Implicitly relational predicates are characterized by unique ...
  • Schneider, Megan (2014-02-24)
    I examined the differences between the DeepBank and Penn Treebank and the effect of hand-created and grammar-derived annotations on dependency representations. The dependencies comparison involved transforming the DeepBank ...
  • Gentile, Anthony (2014-02-24)
    A popular use case of computational linguistics is the identification of sentiment in text. Many current methods for sentiment classification focus on word features within sentences of a text. These methods employ different ...
  • Song, Sanghoun (2014-04-30)
    This dissertation makes substantial contributions to both the theoretical and computational treatment of information structure, with an eye toward creating natural language processing applications such as multilingual ...
  • Rolston, Leanne Elizabeth (2014-04-30)
    It has been consistently shown that Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) performance on casual, spontaneous speech is much worse than on carefully planned or read speech by as much as double the word error rate, and that ...
  • Wax, David Allen (2014-04-30)
    This study examines the cross-linguistic potential for the automatic analysis of verbal morphology and creation of implemented formal grammars using the Grammar Matrix customization system and the rich linguistic resource ...
  • Trimble, Thomas James
    The LinGO Grammar Matrix (Bender et al. 2002, 2010) provides a system for user-linguists to jump start the creation of starter Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar precision grammars (Pollard and Sag 1994), with semantic ...
  • Jaja, Claire
    Dependency parsing is an important natural language processing (NLP) task with many downstream applications, and as is common in the field, high accuracy results can be obtained when using statistical methods and training ...
