TwittIrish: A Universal Dependencies Treebank of Tweets in Modern Irish

no code implementations ACL 2022 Lauren Cassidy, Teresa Lynn, James Barry, Jennifer Foster

Modern Irish is a minority language lacking sufficient computational resources for the task of accurate automatic syntactic parsing of user-generated content such as tweets.

gaBERT -- an Irish Language Model

1 code implementation27 Jul 2021 James Barry, Joachim Wagner, Lauren Cassidy, Alan Cowap, Teresa Lynn, Abigail Walsh, Mícheál J. Ó Meachair, Jennifer Foster

We compare our gaBERT model to multilingual BERT and the monolingual Irish WikiBERT, and we show that gaBERT provides better representations for a downstream parsing task.

The DCU-EPFL Enhanced Dependency Parser at the IWPT 2021 Shared Task

1 code implementation ACL (IWPT) 2021 James Barry, Alireza Mohammadshahi, Joachim Wagner, Jennifer Foster, James Henderson

The task involves parsing Enhanced UD graphs, which are an extension of the basic dependency trees designed to be more facilitative towards representing semantic structure.

The ADAPT Enhanced Dependency Parser at the IWPT 2020 Shared Task

2 code implementations WS 2020 James Barry, Joachim Wagner, Jennifer Foster

Unfortunately, we did not ensure a connected graph as part of our pipeline approach and our competition submission relied on a last-minute fix to pass the validation script which harmed our official evaluation scores significantly.

Treebank Embedding Vectors for Out-of-domain Dependency Parsing

1 code implementation ACL 2020 Joachim Wagner, James Barry, Jennifer Foster

A recent advance in monolingual dependency parsing is the idea of a treebank embedding vector, which allows all treebanks for a particular language to be used as training data while at the same time allowing the model to prefer training data from one treebank over others and to select the preferred treebank at test time.

Cross-lingual Parsing with Polyglot Training and Multi-treebank Learning: A Faroese Case Study

1 code implementation WS 2019 James Barry, Joachim Wagner, Jennifer Foster

Finally, we apply multi-treebank modelling to the projected treebanks, in addition to or alternatively to polyglot modelling on the source side.

Designing a Symbolic Intermediate Representation for Neural Surface Realization

no code implementations WS 2019 Henry Elder, Jennifer Foster, James Barry, Alexander O'Connor

Generated output from neural NLG systems often contain errors such as hallucination, repetition or contradiction.
