Computational Learning of Construction Grammars

[Read Full-Tex: Computational Learning of Construction Grammars] This paper presents an algorithm for learning the construction grammar of a language from a large corpus. This grammar induction algorithm has two goals: first, to show that construction grammars are learnable without highly specified innate structure; second, to develop a model of which units do or do … More Computational Learning of Construction Grammars

Multi-Unit Directional Measures of Association: Moving Beyond Pairs of Words

[Read Full Text: Dunn.Association Measures] This paper formulates and evaluates a series of multi-unit measures of directional association, building on the pairwise ΔP measure, that are able to quantify association in sequences of varying length and type of representation. Multi-unit measures face an additional segmentation problem: once the implicit length constraint of pairwise measures is … More Multi-Unit Directional Measures of Association: Moving Beyond Pairs of Words
