Neural machine translation has considerably improved the quality of automatic translations by learning good representations of input sentences. Formerly the American Journal of Computational Linguistics, Volume 12, Number 1, January-March 1986, Computational Linguistics. absTractable Lexical-Functional GrammarJürgen Wedekind This is not to say that computational linguists can’t, and shouldn’t, take advantage of linguistics, or at least avoid culpable ignorance where linguists have something to offer. L. Alfonso Ureña-López, pdf Now, 50 years later, the field of computational linguistics has grown tremendously and computational linguistics is an active research area in … This was as early as 1970. We find that our best performing textual model is most associated with topics that are intuitively related to each prediction task and that better models yield higher correlation with more informative topics.1, Computational Linguistics, Volume 46, Issue 1 - March 2020, Computational Linguistics, Volume 46, Issue 2 - June 2020, Computational Linguistics, Volume 46, Issue 3 - September 2020, On the Linguistic Representational Power of Neural Machine Translation Models, An Empirical Study on Crosslingual Transfer in Probabilistic Topic Models, Data-Driven Sentence Simplification: Survey and Benchmark, Corpora Annotated with Negation: An Overview, Multilingual and Interlingual Semantic Representations for Natural Language Processing: A Brief Introduction, Unsupervised Word Translation with Adversarial Autoencoder, A Systematic Study of Inner-Attention-Based Sentence Representations in Multilingual Neural Machine Translation, Abstract Syntax as Interlingua: Scaling Up the Grammatical Framework from Controlled Languages to Robust Pipelines, Fair Is Better than Sensational: Man Is to Doctor as Woman Is to Doctor, The Limitations of Stylometry for Detecting Machine-Generated Fake News, Semantic Drift in Multilingual Representations. | Prasanth Kolachina, pdf Computational linguists are interested in providing computational models of various kinds of linguistic phenomena. | Particularly, we present a latent Dirichlet allocation–based analysis, where we interpret model predictions in terms of correlated topics. Permission is granted to make copies for the purposes of teaching and research. It is a relatively young scientific field that developed out of the integration of theoretical linguistics, mathematical linguistics, artificial … | Investigations of its mathematical properties have shown that, without further restrictions, the recognition, emptiness, and generation problems are undecidable, and that they are intractable in the worst case even with commonly applied restrictions. (ii) Do the representations capture long-range dependencies, and effectively handle syntactically divergent languages? However, grammars of real languages appear not to invoke the full expressive power of the formalism, as indicated by the fact that algorithms and implementations for recognition and generation have been developed that run—even for broad-coverage grammars—in typically polynomial time. Jianfeng Gao GF provides grammar resources for over 40 languages, enabling accurate generation and translation, as well as grammar engineering tools and components for mobile and Web applications.

However, recent work has shown superior performance for non-adversarial methods in more challenging language pairs. absLINSPECTOR: Multilingual Probing Tasks for Word RepresentationsGözde Gül Şahin bib | | James Glass, pdf | We show that LFG grammars that respect these restrictions, while still suitable for the description of natural languages, are equivalent to linear context-free rewriting systems and allow for tractable computation. bib | Clara Vania Sentence Simplification (SS) aims to modify a sentence in order to make it easier to read and understand. Abstract syntax is an interlingual representation used in compilers. Computational linguistics (CL) may be thought of as the study of natural language in the intersection of linguistics and computer science. Darsh J. Shah Rochelle Choenni, pdf The journal publishes articles on computational linguistics and natural language processing, primarily original research papers and reports. | Currently, most corpora have been annotated for English, but the presence of languages other than English on the Internet, such as Chinese or Spanish, is greater every day. In this article, we explore a multilingual translation model capable of producing fixed-size sentence representations by incorporating an intermediate crosslingual shared layer, which we refer to as attention bridge. The course “Computational Linguistics” is the introductory course to computational linguistics for MSc students. Iryna Gurevych, pdf | Lucia Specia, pdf Enrico Mensa Welcome! However, in this work, we show that stylometry is limited against machine-generated misinformation. absA Systematic Study of Inner-Attention-Based Sentence Representations in Multilingual Neural Machine TranslationRaúl Vázquez We outline the most important characteristics of each framework and then discuss how particular language phenomena are treated across those frameworks, while trying to shed light on commonalities as well as differences. Nevertheless, we are somewhat optimistic about the future. Since the release in 2014, XiaoIce has communicated with over 660 million active users and succeeded in establishing long-term relationships with many of them. Notable findings include the following observations: (i) Word morphology and part-of-speech information are captured at the lower layers of the model; (ii) In contrast, lexical semantics or non-local syntactic and semantic dependencies are better represented at the higher layers of the model; (iii) Representations learned using characters are more informed about word-morphology compared to those learned using subword units; and (iv) Representations learned by multilingual models are richer compared to bilingual models. Executing these transformations while keeping sentences grammatical, preserving their main idea, and generating simpler output, is a challenging and still far from solved problem. From the mid 1950s to the mid 1960s progress was made by… Computational Linguistics Journal (2018) Contents. Along with performing comprehensive ablation studies to understand the contribution of different components of our adversarial model, we also conduct a thorough analysis of the refinement procedures to understand their effects. Nevertheless, the combination of IoT-based multimedia with CL services has received Our method includes regularization terms to enforce cycle consistency and input reconstruction, and puts the target encoders as an adversary against the corresponding discriminator. This article describes the development of Microsoft XiaoIce, the most popular social chatbot in the world. We conclude by arguing that LESSLEX vectors may be relevant for practical applications and for research on conceptual and lexical access and competence. bib Analysis of large-scale online logs shows that XiaoIce has achieved an average CPS of 23, which is significantly higher than that of other chatbots and even human conversations. | bib ACL materials are Copyright © 1963–2020 ACL; other materials are copyrighted by their respective copyright holders. bib In this setting, multilingual access is governed by the mapping of terms onto their underlying sense descriptions, such that all vectors co-exist in the same semantic space. We systematically study the impact of the size of the attention bridge and the effect of including additional languages in the model. From the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s progress was made by research groups working on machine translation and Formerly the American Journal of Computational Linguistics, Volume 10, Number 2, April-June 1984, Computational Linguistics. Recently, there has been a surge of interest within the computational linguistics (CL) community in the social dimension of language. Amir Feder We propose to conduct an adapted version of representational similarity analysis of a selected set of concepts in computational multilingual representations. Mathias Creutz LESSLEX has been tested on three tasks relevant to lexical semantics: conceptual similarity, contextual similarity, and semantic text similarity. Although there is an abundance of computational work on player metrics prediction based on past performance, very few attempts to incorporate out-of-game signals have been made. The concept of abstract syntax offers a unified view on many other approaches: Universal Dependencies, WordNets, FrameNets, Construction Grammars, and Abstract Meaning Representations. We expect that this survey will serve as a starting point for researchers interested in the task and help spark new ideas for future developments. About the Program. We collected a data set of transcripts from key NBA players’ pre-game interviews and their in-game performance metrics, totalling 5,226 interview-metric pairs. These approaches, broadly termed stylometry, have found success in source attribution and misinformation detection in human-written texts. The 58th annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) will take place online from July 5th through July 10th, 2020.. ACL is the premier conference of the field of computational linguistics, covering a broad spectrum of diverse research areas that are concerned with computational approaches to natural language. | absThe Limitations of Stylometry for Detecting Machine-Generated Fake NewsTal Schuster TACL has the following features: Crosslingual word embeddings learned from monolingual embeddings have a crucial role in many downstream tasks, ranging from machine translation to transfer learning. The journal, sponsored by the Association for Computational Linguistics, has been published for the ACL by MIT Press since 1988, and has been Open Access since the beginning of 2009.All issues published by MIT Press are freely available to all … We experimented over the principal data sets for such tasks in their multilingual and crosslingual variants, improving on or closely approaching state-of-the-art results. The development of GF started in 1998, first as a tool for controlled language implementations, where it has gained an established position in both academic and commercial projects. Language is a social phenomenon and variation is inherent to its social nature. In this article, we look beyond engineering goals and analyze the relations between languages in computational representations. A recent development in NLP is to use simple classification tasks, also called probing tasks, that test for a single linguistic feature such as part-of-speech. Language requirements Applicants must provide proof of their proficiency in English at C1 level (e.g., TOEFL, equivalent tests or university certificate if Bachelor's courses were held in English). | I always wanted to learn more about Computational Linguistics from a Linguistic-based point of view, and this book is definitely more than what I asked for. | 2019-12-18 María Teresa Martín-Valdivia Concurrently, they have also been used to expose how strongly human biases are encoded in vector spaces trained on natural language, with examples like man is to computer programmer as woman is to homemaker. Finally, we also include an in-depth analysis of the proposed attention bridge and its ability to encode linguistic properties. Roi Reichart. We take into account both intelligent quotient and emotional quotient in system design, cast human–machine social chat as decision-making over Markov Decision Processes, and optimize XiaoIce for long-term user engagement, measured in expected Conversation-turns Per Session (CPS). In particular, we show that larger intermediate layers not only improve translation quality, especially for long sentences, but also push the accuracy of trainable classification tasks. For more information on … We analyze the representations learned by neural machine translation (NMT) models at various levels of granularity and evaluate their quality through relevant extrinsic properties. | bib | Analogies such as man is to king as woman is to X are often used to illustrate the amazing power of word embeddings. Formerly the American Journal of Computational Linguistics, Volume 12, Number 3, July-September 1986, Computational Linguistics. | Specifically, it was previously unclear whether linguistic signals gathered from players’ interviews can add information that does not appear in performance metrics. We conduct a thorough investigation along several parameters: (i) Which layers in the architecture capture each of these linguistic phenomena; (ii) How does the choice of translation unit (word, character, or subword unit) impact the linguistic properties captured by the underlying representations? In particular, we seek answers to the following questions: (i) How accurately is word structure captured within the learned representations, which is an important aspect in translating morphologically rich languages? (iv) Do the representations learned by multilingual NMT models capture the same amount of linguistic information as their bilingual counterparts? These models may be "knowledge-based" ("hand-crafted") or "data-driven" ("statistical" or "empirical"). Existing studies mostly focus on exploring the linguistic information encoded by the continuous representations of English text.

Di Li bib Cristina España-Bonet absAbstract Syntax as Interlingua: Scaling Up the Grammatical Framework from Controlled Languages to Robust PipelinesAarne Ranta We create two benchmarks demonstrating the stylistic similarity between malicious and legitimate uses of LMs, utilized in auto-completion and editing-assistance settings.1 Our findings highlight the need for non-stylometry approaches in detecting machine-generated misinformation, and open up the discussion on the desired evaluation benchmarks. We offer a brief summary of the work in the issue, which includes developments on lexical and sentential semantic representations, from symbolic and neural perspectives. ;] absCorpora Annotated with Negation: An OverviewSalud María Jiménez-Zafra XiaoIce is uniquely designed as an artifical intelligence companion with an emotional connection to satisfy the human need for communication, affection, and social belonging. Pascale Fung absOn the Linguistic Representational Power of Neural Machine Translation ModelsYonatan Belinkov The ACL Anthology is managed and built by the ACL Anthology team of volunteers. Get this from a library! We stand by the truth that human biases are present in word embeddings, and, of course, the need to address them. Computational Linguistics is the only publication devoted exclusively to the design and analysis of natural language processing systems. As a result, for each term we have thus the “blended” terminological vector along with those describing all senses associated to that term. absFair Is Better than Sensational: Man Is to Doctor as Woman Is to DoctorMalvina Nissim Welcome to the TACL submission site! This is an important insight that helps to properly design models for specific applications. | But analogies are not an accurate tool to do so, and the way they have been most often used has exacerbated some possibly non-existing biases and perhaps hidden others. | It covers a wide range of techniques for natural language processing. We present a reusable methodology for creation and evaluation of such tests in a multilingual setting, which is challenging because of a lack of resources, lower quality of tools, and differences among languages. Despite the recent success of deep neural networks in natural language processing and other spheres of artificial intelligence, their interpretability remains a challenge. We design neural models for players’ action prediction based on increasingly more complex aspects of the language signals in their open-ended interviews. This article gives an overview of how sentence meaning is represented in eleven deep-syntactic frameworks, ranging from those based on linguistic theories elaborated for decades to rather lightweight NLP-motivated approaches. Computational linguistics (CL) is an interdisciplinary mix of computer science and linguistics with additional insights drawn from areas such as psycholinguistics and the philosophy of language. On the research side, the focus in the last ten years has been on scaling up GF to wide-coverage language processing. Ilia Kuznetsov In order to do so, several rewriting transformations can be performed such as replacement, reordering, and splitting. In this study, we present a review of the corpora annotated with negation information in several languages with the goal of evaluating what aspects of negation have been annotated and how compatible the corpora are. We also include a benchmark of different approaches on common data sets so as to compare them and highlight their strengths and limitations. absLessLex: Linking Multilingual Embeddings to SenSe Representations of LEXical ItemsDavide Colla All articles are published under a CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 license. All published papers … Sentence Meaning Representations Across Languages: What Can We Learn from Existing Frameworks?
