Structural Priming as Structure-Mapping: Children Use Analogies From Previous Utterances to Guide Sentence Production
What mechanisms underlie children’s language production? Structural priming—the repetition of sentence structure across utterances—is an important measure of the developing ...

Embedding Visual Words into Concept Space for Action and Scene Recognition
In this paper we propose a novel approach to introducing semantic relations into the bag-of-words framework. We use the latent semantic models, such as LSA and pLSA, in order to d...
