  1. 1. How negation influences word order in languages : Automatic classification of word order preference in positive and negative transitive clauses

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för lingvistik och filologi

    Author : Chen Lyu; [2023]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In this work, we explore the possibility of using word alignment in parallel corpus to project language annotations such as Part-of-Speech tags and dependency relation from high-resource languages to low-resource languages. We use a parallel corpus of Bible translations, including 1,444 translations in 986 languages, and a well-developed parser is used to annotate source languages (English, French, German, and Czech).

  2. 2. Head-to-head Transfer Learning Comparisons made Possible : A Comparative Study of Transfer Learning Methods for Neural Machine Translation of the Baltic Languages

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för lingvistik och filologi

    Author : Mathias Stenlund; [2023]
    Keywords : machine translation; transfer learning; Latvian; Lithuanian; low-resource languages; transformers; parent language; child language; comparative study;

    Abstract : The struggle of training adequate MT models using data-hungry NMT frameworks for low-resource language pairs has created a need to alleviate the scarcity of sufficiently large parallel corpora. Different transfer learning methods have been introduced as possible solutions to this problem, where a new model for a target task is initialized using parameters learned from some other high-resource task.

    Keywords : Word accents; spoken word recognition; prediction; ERP; N400; Languages and Literatures;

    Abstract : Prosodic cues can aid speech processing by adding semantic information in lexical tones or functional information in intonational tones. Swedish word accents are considered to have stronger grammatical functions than semantic roles, although they are shaped by both lexical and intonational information structure. READ MORE
