A toy distributional model for fuzzy generalised quantifiers

no code implementations PaM 2020 Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh, Gijs Wijnholds

It is possible to overcome the computational hurdles by working with fuzzy generalised quantifiers.

Proceedings End-to-End Compositional Models of Vector-Based Semantics

no code implementations10 Aug 2022 Michael Moortgat, Gijs Wijnholds

The workshop End-to-End Compositional Models of Vector-Based Semantics was held at NUI Galway on 15 and 16 August 2022 as part of the 33rd European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information (ESSLLI 2022).

Discontinuous Constituency and BERT: A Case Study of Dutch

1 code implementation Findings (ACL) 2022 Konstantinos Kogkalidis, Gijs Wijnholds

In this paper, we set out to quantify the syntactic capacity of BERT in the evaluation regime of non-context free patterns, as occurring in Dutch.

Improving BERT Pretraining with Syntactic Supervision

1 code implementation21 Apr 2021 Giorgos Tziafas, Konstantinos Kogkalidis, Gijs Wijnholds, Michael Moortgat

Bidirectional masked Transformers have become the core theme in the current NLP landscape.

SICKNL: A Dataset for Dutch Natural Language Inference

1 code implementation14 Jan 2021 Gijs Wijnholds, Michael Moortgat

A Frobenius Algebraic Analysis for Parasitic Gaps

no code implementations12 May 2020 Michael Moortgat, Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh, Gijs Wijnholds

The interpretation of parasitic gaps is an ostensible case of non-linearity in natural language composition.


Categorical Vector Space Semantics for Lambek Calculus with a Relevant Modality

no code implementations6 May 2020 Lachlan McPheat, Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh, Hadi Wazni, Gijs Wijnholds

We develop a categorical compositional distributional semantics for Lambek Calculus with a Relevant Modality ! L*, which has a limited edition of the contraction and permutation rules.


Evaluating Composition Models for Verb Phrase Elliptical Sentence Embeddings

1 code implementation NAACL 2019 Gijs Wijnholds, Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh

Our results show that non-linear addition and a non-linear tensor-based composition outperform the naive non-compositional baselines and the linear models, and that sentence encoders perform well on sentence similarity, but not on verb disambiguation.

A Typedriven Vector Semantics for Ellipsis with Anaphora using Lambek Calculus with Limited Contraction

no code implementations5 May 2019 Gijs Wijnholds, Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh

We review previous compositional distributional models of relative pronouns, coordination and a restricted account of ellipsis in the DisCoCat framework of Coecke et al. (2010, 2013).

Classical Copying versus Quantum Entanglement in Natural Language: The Case of VP-ellipsis

no code implementations8 Nov 2018 Gijs Wijnholds, Mehrnoosh Sadrzadeh

This paper compares classical copying and quantum entanglement in natural language by considering the case of verb phrase (VP) ellipsis.

Lexical and Derivational Meaning in Vector-Based Models of Relativisation

no code implementations30 Nov 2017 Michael Moortgat, Gijs Wijnholds

Sadrzadeh et al (2013) present a compositional distributional analysis of relative clauses in English in terms of the Frobenius algebraic structure of finite dimensional vector spaces.
