Quantifying Cognitive Factors in Lexical Decline

1 code implementation12 Oct 2021 David Francis, Ella Rabinovich, Farhan Samir, David Mortensen, Suzanne Stevenson

Specifically, we propose a variety of psycholinguistic factors -- semantic, distributional, and phonological -- that we hypothesize are predictive of lexical decline, in which words greatly decrease in frequency over time.

Phoneme Recognition through Fine Tuning of Phonetic Representations: a Case Study on Luhya Language Varieties

no code implementations4 Apr 2021 Kathleen Siminyu, Xinjian Li, Antonios Anastasopoulos, David Mortensen, Michael R. Marlo, Graham Neubig

Models pre-trained on multiple languages have shown significant promise for improving speech recognition, particularly for low-resource languages.

Polyglot Neural Language Models: A Case Study in Cross-Lingual Phonetic Representation Learning

no code implementations NAACL 2016 Yulia Tsvetkov, Sunayana Sitaram, Manaal Faruqui, Guillaume Lample, Patrick Littell, David Mortensen, Alan W. black, Lori Levin, Chris Dyer

We introduce polyglot language models, recurrent neural network models trained to predict symbol sequences in many different languages using shared representations of symbols and conditioning on typological information about the language to be predicted.
