Improving Pronoun Resolution by Incorporating Coreferential Information of Candidates
Coreferential information of a candidate, such as the properties of its antecedents, is important for pronoun resolution because it reflects the salience of the candidate in the l...

A Kernel PCA Method for Superior Word Sense Disambiguation
We introduce a new method for disambiguating word senses that exploits a nonlinear Kernel Principal Component Analysis (KPCA) technique to achieve accuracy superior to the best pu...

FLSA: Extending Latent Semantic Analysis with Features for Dialogue Act Classification
We discuss Feature Latent Semantic Analysis (FLSA), an extension to Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA). LSA is a statistical method that is ordinarily trained on words only; FLSA adds...

Annealing Techniques For Unsupervised Statistical Language Learning
Exploiting unannotated natural language data is hard largely because unsupervised parameter estimation is hard. We describe deterministic annealing (Rose et al., 1990) as an appea...
