Some Projects

Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar and Degrees of Grammaticality
Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG) is an theoretical framework for expressing generalizations about linguistic phenomena in a way that integrates information supplied from syntax, semantics and pragmatics. To model the phenomena HPSG assumes a domain richer than trees, known as typed recursive feature structures. In order to specify linguistic theories in HPSG it is necessary to have a coherent theory of the models. This is articulated in logics corresponding to the feature structures. This research project is engaged in identifying the right notions of feature structures and corresponding logics that admit paraconsistency. Paraconsistency is a property of logics that do not reduce to triviality in the presence of contradictions. Instead, the effects of contradictions are localized. One source of contradiction in the case of linguistic models is nongrammaticality. However, grammaticality is never simply a binary notion; pretheoretically there are degrees of acceptability corresponding to sentences in the language. Theories of defaults can interface to world knowledge if it is necessary to resolve inconsistency one way or another. It follows that incorporating an appropriate notion of paraconsistent feature structures into the modeling repertoire also admits the possibility of stating theories of grammatical degree in an HPSG framework. This has not been possible before. It also becomes possible to turn the constraint solver associated with paraconsistent feature structures to a problem in robust parsing, parsing with ill-formed inputs.
Underspecified Syntax and Semantics
The human language processor is remarkably fast. Ambiguity, lexical, structural, or semantic, is a pervasive property of natural language. Keeping track of alternatives is the main complicating factor in parsing algorithms. The point of parsing is to obtain semantic representations and to be able to reason with them. However, a significant body of recent research in semantics pays attention to the fact that all ambiguities needn't be resolved for reasoning to proceed. That is, understanding a sentence in a context doesn't require a complete analysis of the sentence at hand. Therefore, there is a growing body of research in semantics focussed on underspecified representations which can be disambiguated when necessary. Apart from issues of scope, semantic ambiguity reduces to syntactic ambiguity, either in preterminal category assignment or in properly structural ambiguity. This means that semantic underspecification reduces to the problem of syntactic underspecification. This project is one in working out a well structured domain of ambiguous trees to be used in modeling ambiguity -- specifically, as a foundation for underspecified syntactic representation. This project involves identifying appropriate notions of ambiguous trees including grammar theoretic description and proof theory, as well as disambiguation. The outputs of this project are useful to techniques in robust parsing like shallow, chunk parsing. We are developing integrated syntactic and semantic fragments using the results.
Applications of Formal Language Theory
The mathematics of tree expressivity and corresponding models of computation is fairly well understood in many respects. However, there are still open problems of a theoretical and practical nature. One of the open theoretical problems is the potential density of the Chomsky hierarchy between the context free and mildly context sensitive languages. A more practical problem relates to average case complexity for recognition and parsing problems for characteristic languages of each class. It remains to determine univocally the place of various natural languages' syntax in the classification. It also remains to identify the implications of one classification or another on cognitive processing, and the degree to which theoretical facts correlate with empirical data on language use. In this regard, we are interested in sentence and discourse syntax. For instance, the syntax of narrative structure and limits of structural expressivity in narrative. Other applications are in computational biology, for instance, in modeling genetic processes that operate over DNA.
Dialog Semantics
One of the most productive characterizations of what a sentence means has been truth conditions: one knows what a sentence means when one knows the conditions under which it is true. It has nonetheless been long understood that this is not a complete characterization as, for example, it omits facts about availability or nonavailability of antecedents for pronouns in truth-conditionally identical environments. Considerable work has been done in extending the achievements of formal model theoretic semantics for sentences to discourse phenomena. It's another challenge to move from discourse to dialog, since in the case of dialog basic assumptions about interpretation functions must be questioned. It is an open question whether denotations for expressions are ever shared, much less agreed upon (and requires a methodological leap of faith that even the expressions are shared). However, even from a pessimistic perspective on the possibility of shared reference, various states of communicative success can be formally characterized. The aim here is to develop as productive an account of meaning for dialog as truth conditions are for monolog, under the assumption of a compositional syntax and semantics.
Default Inheritance Reasoning as a Model of Human Reasoning with Generics
Books are expensive; telephone books are books; telephone books are free. These sentences are all defaults, a subset of the class of generics in natural language. Defaults are sentences that are `typicaly' true, but not universally true. Arguably, non analytic sentence expressing a theoretic or pretheoretic notion is accurately translated into logic as a universally quantified first order formula. Genericity is prolific in natural language, and human reasoning with sets of generics is relatively quick (if not completely reliable). Yet, it has been difficult to find models of human reasoning with defaults that are actually computable. This project examines logics for genericity, human reasoning with sets of generics, and evaluates the degree of fit between various proposed logics and actual human behavior. Default inheritance reasoning is one class of non-monotonic logic which has some reasonable claims for providing a good description of human reasoning as the framework represents default taxonomic information, thus capturing an important aspect of genericity. Moreover, certain of these logics have the right complexity properties in comparison to human reasoning. Thus, it is interesting to examine the degree to which the proof theories for these logics share resemblances with generalizations of human behavior with generics.
Language Evolution, Language Change, and Metaphoricity
In doing formal syntax and semantics of natural language, one must distinguish between language and communication. A typical person on the street would say that there is a difference between `body language' and natural sign language, a difference between what people can do linguistically and what nonhumans can do. No one would doubt that dogs communicate, but few would call their communication a language. Without committing ourselves on this debate, we explore the initial conditions that must be in place for a human-like natural language to begin in the first place. This involves dialog modelling and potentially noisy and unreliable transfer of information among interlocutors. If language is to emerge, it must emerge quickly in order to be sustained and passed from generation to generation. But at all levels of linguistic analysis--phonetic, syntact, semantic, pragmatic--language develops over time. Sense extension created by novel metaphor and other tropes, as well as an underlying cognitive impulse towards synonymy avoidance seem to jointly provide the basis for language change.
Text Classification and Forensic Linguistics
Forensic linguistics is an application of corpus based methods to unstructured text classification. In its most forcused form, the issue is one of authorship identification, and our work in this area has been in testing the reliability and validity of objective tests for document similarity. In its most application oriented form, this may be applied to Spam filtering, as in the MSc Dissertation of Cormac O'Brien. Or in a more general setting it can be used to classify documents in a spectrum of similarity, such as in the MPhil in Linguistics dissertation of Sophie Van Gijsel.
Our group has developed the spelling checker for Irish Gaelic that is licensed by Microsoft, tools for managing experiments in cognitive science over the internet, servers for lexicographers, and a platform for experimenting with parameters that are involved in language evolution.
