Download Semi-Supervised Dependency Parsing by Wenliang Chen, Min Zhang PDF

By Wenliang Chen, Min Zhang

This booklet offers a accomplished assessment of semi-supervised methods to dependency parsing. Having turn into more and more well known in recent times, one of many major purposes for his or her luck is they could make use of enormous unlabeled info including rather small categorised info and feature proven their merits within the context of dependency parsing for lots of languages. a variety of semi-supervised dependency parsing methods were proposed in fresh works which make the most of sorts of info gleaned from unlabeled facts. The e-book bargains readers a entire creation to those methods, making it supreme as a textbook for complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars and researchers within the fields of syntactic parsing and average language processing.

Derivations and Evaluations: Object Shift in the Germanic Languages

This examine indicates that Scandinavian item shift and so-called A-scrambling within the continental Germanic languages are an identical, and goals at offering an account of the adaptation that we discover with recognize to this phenomenon by way of combining sure facets of the Minimalist software and Optimality thought. extra particularly, it's claimed that representations created by means of a simplified model of the computational process of human language CHL are evaluated in an optimality theoretic style by means of taking recourse to a truly small set of output constraints.

Spatial Semiotics and Spatial Mental Models

This booklet provides novel facts from endangered languages and cultures which are ever so usually nonetheless no longer excited about. It combines various disciplines to catch the intricacies of spatial orientation and navigation. additionally, the interaction among tradition via language and practices provides new insights within the significance of mixing cognitive semantics with cognitive anthropology.

Semi-Supervised Dependency Parsing

This publication offers a complete assessment of semi-supervised methods to dependency parsing. Having develop into more and more renowned lately, one of many major purposes for his or her luck is they could make use of huge unlabeled facts including quite small classified info and feature proven their merits within the context of dependency parsing for lots of languages.

Theoretical Approaches to Linguistic Variation

The contributions of this ebook take care of the difficulty of language version. all of them proportion the idea that in the language school the adaptation area is hierarchically restricted and that minimum adjustments within the set of estate values defining each one language provide upward thrust to various outputs in the related procedure.

We first briefly introduce the self-training and co-training approaches and then introduce the approach of ambiguity-aware ensemble training in details. The conventional approaches of the whole-tree level pick up some high-quality auto-parsed training instances from unlabeled data using bootstrapping methods, such as self-training (Yarowsky 1995), co-training (Blum and Mitchell 1998), and tri-training (Zhou and Li 2005). However, these methods gain limited success in dependency parsing. Although working well on constituent parsing (Huang and Harper 2009; McClosky et al.

Instead of using entire trees, several researchers exploit lexical information, such as word clusters and word cooccurrences (Koo et al. 2008; Zhou et al. 2011). The lexical information is easy to be used in parsing models, but it ignores the dependency relations among words which might be useful. The use of bilexical dependencies is attempted in van Noord (2007) and Chen et al. (2008). However, the bilexical dependencies provide a relatively poor level of useful information for parsing. To provide richer information, we can consider more words, such as subtrees (Chen et al.

This kind of syntactic divergence is helpful because it can provide complementary knowledge from a different perspective. Surdeanu and Manning (2010) also show that the diversity of parsers is important for performance improvement when integrating different parsers in the supervised track. Therefore, we can conclude that co-training helps dependency parsing, especially when using a more divergent parser. The last experiment in the second major row is known as tri-training, which only uses unlabeled sentences on which Berkeley Parser and ZPar produce identical outputs (“Parse B=Z”).
