One significant challenge in supervised all-words WSD is to classify among senses for a majority of words that lie in the long-tail distribution.
Extensive experiments on real-world low-resource languages - without access to large-scale monolingual corpora or large amounts of labeled data - for tasks like cross-lingual sentiment analysis and named entity recognition show the effectiveness of our approach.
In current hate speech datasets, there exists a high correlation between annotators' perceptions of toxicity and signals of African American English (AAE).
Given the complexity of combinations of tasks, languages, and domains in natural language processing (NLP) research, it is computationally prohibitive to exhaustively test newly proposed models on each possible experimental setting.

Despite recent advances in natural language processing and other language technology, the application of such technology to language documentation and conservation has been limited.
Translation to or from low-resource languages LRLs poses challenges for machine translation in terms of both adequacy and fluency.
It has been previously noted that neural machine translation (NMT) is very sensitive to domain shift.

Cross-lingual transfer, where a high-resource transfer language is used to improve the accuracy of a low-resource task language, is now an invaluable tool for improving performance of natural language processing (NLP) on low-resource languages.
