Lexical Resource Mapping via Translations

no code implementations LREC 2022 Hongchang Bao, Bradley Hauer, Grzegorz Kondrak

Aligning lexical resources that associate words with concepts in multiple languages increases the total amount of semantic information that can be leveraged for various NLP tasks.

Dorabella Cipher as Musical Inspiration

no code implementations SMP (ICON) 2021 Bradley Hauer, Colin Choi, Abram Hindle, Scott Smallwood, Grzegorz Kondrak

The Dorabella cipher is an encrypted note of English composer Edward Elgar, which has defied decipherment attempts for more than a century.

Homonymy and Polysemy Detection with Multilingual Information

no code implementations EACL (GWC) 2021 Amir Ahmad Habibi, Bradley Hauer, Grzegorz Kondrak

Deciding whether a semantically ambiguous word is homonymous or polysemous is equivalent to establishing whether it has any pair of senses that are semantically unrelated.


On Universal Colexifications

no code implementations EACL (GWC) 2021 Hongchang Bao, Bradley Hauer, Grzegorz Kondrak

Colexification occurs when two distinct concepts are lexified by the same word.

Semantically-Prompted Language Models Improve Visual Descriptions

no code implementations5 Jun 2023 Michael Ogezi, Bradley Hauer, Grzegorz Kondrak

With both ideas, we demonstrate that V-GLOSS improves visual descriptions and achieves strong results in the zero-shot setting on general and fine-grained image-classification datasets, including ImageNet, STL-10, FGVC Aircraft, and Flowers 102.

UAlberta at SemEval 2022 Task 2: Leveraging Glosses and Translations for Multilingual Idiomaticity Detection

no code implementations SemEval (NAACL) 2022 Bradley Hauer, Seeratpal Jaura, Talgat Omarov, Grzegorz Kondrak

Further hypothesizing that literal and idiomatic expressions translate differently, our second method translates an expression in context, and uses a lexical knowledge base to determine if the translation is literal.

Task 2 Translation

WiC = TSV = WSD: On the Equivalence of Three Semantic Tasks

no code implementations NAACL 2022 Bradley Hauer, Grzegorz Kondrak

The Word-in-Context (WiC) task has attracted considerable attention in the NLP community, as demonstrated by the popularity of the recent MCL-WiC SemEval shared task.

Semi-Supervised and Unsupervised Sense Annotation via Translations

no code implementations RANLP 2021 Bradley Hauer, Grzegorz Kondrak, Yixing Luan, Arnob Mallik, Lili Mou

Our two unsupervised methods refine sense annotations produced by a knowledge-based WSD system via lexical translations in a parallel corpus.

One Sense per Translation

no code implementations10 Jun 2021 Bradley Hauer, Grzegorz Kondrak

Translations have been used in WSD as a source of knowledge, and even as a means of delimiting word senses.

Low-Resource G2P and P2G Conversion with Synthetic Training Data

no code implementations WS 2020 Bradley Hauer, Amir Ahmad Habibi, Yixing Luan, Arnob Mallik, Grzegorz Kondrak

This paper presents the University of Alberta systems and results in the SIGMORPHON 2020 Task 1: Multilingual Grapheme-to-Phoneme Conversion.

Synonymy = Translational Equivalence

no code implementations28 Apr 2020 Bradley Hauer, Grzegorz Kondrak

Synonymy and translational equivalence are the relations of sameness of meaning within and across languages.

Cognate Projection for Low-Resource Inflection Generation

no code implementations WS 2019 Bradley Hauer, Amir Ahmad Habibi, Yixing Luan, Rashed Rubby Riyadh, Grzegorz Kondrak

We propose cognate projection as a method of crosslingual transfer for inflection generation in the context of the SIGMORPHON 2019 Shared Task.

Joint Approach to Deromanization of Code-mixed Texts

no code implementations WS 2019 Rashed Rubby Riyadh, Grzegorz Kondrak

The conversion of romanized texts back to the native scripts is a challenging task because of the inconsistent romanization conventions and non-standard language use.

One Homonym per Translation

no code implementations17 Apr 2019 Bradley Hauer, Grzegorz Kondrak

The study of homonymy is vital to resolving fundamental problems in lexical semantics.


Efficient Sequence Labeling with Actor-Critic Training

1 code implementation30 Sep 2018 Saeed Najafi, Colin Cherry, Grzegorz Kondrak

We set out to establish RNNs as an attractive alternative to CRFs for sequence labeling.

String Transduction with Target Language Models and Insertion Handling

no code implementations WS 2018 Garrett Nicolai, Saeed Najafi, Grzegorz Kondrak

Many character-level tasks can be framed as sequence-to-sequence transduction, where the target is a word from a natural language.

You Shall Know the Most Frequent Sense by the Company it Keeps

no code implementations21 Aug 2018 Bradley Hauer, Yixing Luan, Grzegorz Kondrak

Identification of the most frequent sense of a polysemous word is an important semantic task.


Morphological Analysis without Expert Annotation

no code implementations EACL 2017 Garrett Nicolai, Grzegorz Kondrak

The task of morphological analysis is to produce a complete list of lemma+tag analyses for a given word-form.

Extracting Family Relationship Networks from Novels

no code implementations3 May 2014 Aibek Makazhanov, Denilson Barbosa, Grzegorz Kondrak

We present an approach to the extraction of family relations from literary narrative, which incorporates a technique for utterance attribution proposed recently by Elson and McKeown (2010).
