Restrictions on Tree Adjoining Languages
Several methods are known for parsing languages generated by Tree Adjoining Grammars (TAGs) in O(n 6) worst case running time. In this paper we investigate which restrictions on T...

Maximum Entropy Model Learning of the Translation Rules
This paper proposes a learning method of translation rules from parallel corpora. This method applies the maximum entropy principle to a probabilistic model of translation rules. ...

Conditions on Consistency of Probabilistic Tree Adjoining Grammars
Much of the power of probabilistic methods in modelling language comes from their ability to compare several derivations for the same string in the language. An important starting...

The Production of Code-Mixed Discourse
We propose a comprehensive theory of codemixed discourse, encompassing equivalencepoint and insertional code-switching, palindromic constructions and lexical borrowing. The starti...

Part of Speech Tagging Using a Network of Linear Separators
We present an architecture and an on-line learning algorithm and apply it to the problem of part-ofspeech tagging. The architecture presented, SNOW, is a network of linear separat...

An Interactive Domain Independent Approach to Robust Dialogue Interpretation
We discuss an interactive approach to robust interpretation in a large scale speech-to-speech translation system. Where other interactive approaches to robust interpretation have ...

How Verb Subcategorization Frequencies Are Affected By Corpus Choice
The probabilistic relation between verbs and their arguments plays an important role in modern statistical parsers and supertaggers, and in psychological theories of language proc...
