Automatic Identification and Production of Related Words for Historical Linguistics

no code implementations CL 2019 Alina Maria Ciobanu, Liviu P. Dinu

We apply our method to multiple data sets, showing that our approach improves on previous results, also having the advantage of requiring less input data, which is essential in historical linguistics, where resources are generally scarce.

The Myth of Double-Blind Review Revisited: ACL vs. EMNLP

Linguistic classification: dealing jointly with irrelevance and inconsistency

no code implementations RANLP 2019 Laura Franzoi, Andrea Sgarro, Anca Dinu, Liviu P. Dinu

In this paper, we present new methods for language classification which put to good use both syntax and fuzzy tools, and are capable of dealing with irrelevant linguistic features (i. e. features which should not contribute to the classification) and even inconsistent features (which do not make sense for specific languages).

From Image to Text in Sentiment Analysis via Regression and Deep Learning

no code implementations RANLP 2019 Daniela Onita, Liviu P. Dinu, Adriana Birlutiu

In this paper, we investigate an approach for mapping images to text for three types of sentiment categories: positive, neutral and negative.

Sentiment Analysis

Content Extraction and Lexical Analysis from Customer-Agent Interactions

no code implementations WS 2018 Sergiu Nisioi, Anca Bucur, Liviu P. Dinu

In this paper, we provide a lexical comparative analysis of the vocabulary used by customers and agents in an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) environment and a potential solution to clean the data and extract relevant content for NLP.

The Romanian Neuter Examined Through A Two-Gender N-Gram Classification System

no code implementations LREC 2012 Liviu P. Dinu, Vlad Niculae, Octavia-Maria {\c{S}}ulea

A recent analysis of the Romanian gender system described in (Bateman and Polinsky, 2010), based on older observations, argues that there are two lexically unspecified noun classes in the singular and two different ones in the plural and that what is generally called neuter in Romanian shares the class in the singular with masculines, and the class in the plural with feminines based not only on agreement features but also on form.
