We’ve had this conversation before: A Novel Approach to Measuring Dialog Similarity

no code implementations EMNLP 2021 Ofer Lavi, Ella Rabinovich, Segev Shlomov, David Boaz, Inbal Ronen, Ateret Anaby Tavor

The results demonstrate that our method outperforms the other approaches in capturing dialog flow, and is better aligned with the human perception of conversation similarity.

Gaining Insights into Unrecognized User Utterances in Task-Oriented Dialog Systems

no code implementations11 Apr 2022 Ella Rabinovich, Matan Vetzler, David Boaz, Vineet Kumar, Gaurav Pandey, Ateret Anaby-Tavor

The rapidly growing market demand for dialogue agents capable of goal-oriented behavior has caused many tech-industry leaders to invest considerable efforts into task-oriented dialog systems.

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.

Pick a Fight or Bite your Tongue: Investigation of Gender Differences in Idiomatic Language Usage

1 code implementation COLING 2020 Ella Rabinovich, Hila Gonen, Suzanne Stevenson

A large body of research on gender-linked language has established foundations regarding cross-gender differences in lexical, emotional, and topical preferences, along with their sociological underpinnings.

Exploration of Gender Differences in COVID-19 Discourse on Reddit

1 code implementation ACL 2020 Jai Aggarwal, Ella Rabinovich, Suzanne Stevenson

Decades of research on differences in the language of men and women have established postulates about preferences in lexical, topical, and emotional expression between the two genders, along with their sociological underpinnings.

The Typology of Polysemy: A Multilingual Distributional Framework

no code implementations2 Jun 2020 Ella Rabinovich, Yang Xu, Suzanne Stevenson

Lexical semantic typology has identified important cross-linguistic generalizations about the variation and commonalities in polysemy patterns---how languages package up meanings into words.

Where New Words Are Born: Distributional Semantic Analysis of Neologisms and Their Semantic Neighborhoods

1 code implementation SCiL 2020 Maria Ryskina, Ella Rabinovich, Taylor Berg-Kirkpatrick, David R. Mortensen, Yulia Tsvetkov

Besides presenting a new linguistic application of distributional semantics, this study tackles the linguistic question of the role of language-internal factors (in our case, sparsity) in language change motivated by language-external factors (reflected in frequency growth).

Say Anything: Automatic Semantic Infelicity Detection in L2 English Indefinite Pronouns

1 code implementation CONLL 2019 Ella Rabinovich, Julia Watson, Barend Beekhuizen, Suzanne Stevenson

Computational research on error detection in second language speakers has mainly addressed clear grammatical anomalies typical to learners at the beginner-to-intermediate level.

CodeSwitch-Reddit: Exploration of Written Multilingual Discourse in Online Discussion Forums

1 code implementation EMNLP (WNUT) 2019 Ella Rabinovich, Masih Sultani, Suzanne Stevenson

In contrast to many decades of research on oral code-switching, the study of written multilingual productions has only recently enjoyed a surge of interest.

Controversy in Context

no code implementations20 Aug 2019 Benjamin Sznajder, Ariel Gera, Yonatan Bilu, Dafna Sheinwald, Ella Rabinovich, Ranit Aharonov, David Konopnicki, Noam Slonim

With the growing interest in social applications of Natural Language Processing and Computational Argumentation, a natural question is how controversial a given concept is.

Native Language Identification with User Generated Content

no code implementations EMNLP 2018 Gili Goldin, Ella Rabinovich, Shuly Wintner

We address the task of native language identification in the context of social media content, where authors are highly-fluent, advanced nonnative speakers (of English).

Native Language Identification

Learning Concept Abstractness Using Weak Supervision

no code implementations EMNLP 2018 Ella Rabinovich, Benjamin Sznajder, Artem Spector, Ilya Shnayderman, Ranit Aharonov, David Konopnicki, Noam Slonim

We introduce a weakly supervised approach for inferring the property of abstractness of words and expressions in the complete absence of labeled data.

Native Language Cognate Effects on Second Language Lexical Choice

1 code implementation TACL 2018 Ella Rabinovich, Yulia Tsvetkov, Shuly Wintner

We present a computational analysis of cognate effects on the spontaneous linguistic productions of advanced non-native speakers.

Found in Translation: Reconstructing Phylogenetic Language Trees from Translations

no code implementations ACL 2017 Ella Rabinovich, Noam Ordan, Shuly Wintner

Translation has played an important role in trade, law, commerce, politics, and literature for thousands of years.

Personalized Machine Translation: Preserving Original Author Traits

no code implementations EACL 2017 Ella Rabinovich, Shachar Mirkin, Raj Nath Patel, Lucia Specia, Shuly Wintner

The language that we produce reflects our personality, and various personal and demographic characteristics can be detected in natural language texts.

On the Similarities Between Native, Non-native and Translated Texts

no code implementations ACL 2016 Ella Rabinovich, Sergiu Nisioi, Noam Ordan, Shuly Wintner

We present a computational analysis of three language varieties: native, advanced non-native, and translation.

Translation

A Corpus of Native, Non-native and Translated Texts

no code implementations LREC 2016 Sergiu Nisioi, Ella Rabinovich, Liviu P. Dinu, Shuly Wintner

We describe a monolingual English corpus of original and (human) translated texts, with an accurate annotation of speaker properties, including the original language of the utterances and the speaker{'}s country of origin.

A Parallel Corpus of Translationese

no code implementations11 Sep 2015 Ella Rabinovich, Shuly Wintner, Ofek Luis Lewinsohn

To validate the quality and reliability of the corpora, we replicated previous results of supervised and unsupervised identification of translationese, and further extended the experiments to additional datasets and languages.
