    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; interactive learning systems; error; feedback; human-computer interaction; grammar checking; grammaticality judgments; parsing; second language learning; Swedish; evaluation; user studies; language technology; computer assisted language learning; writing; language tools; interaktiva lärsystem; fel; återkoppling; grammatikkontroll; språkverktyg; människa-datorinteraktion; skrivande; andraspråksinlärning; grammatikalitetsbedömning; parsning; Language technology; Språkteknologi;

    Abstract : Skrivande och skrivet språk är idag en viktig del av många människors liv, i datorns ordbehandlare, i e-postprogram och i chattkanaler på Internet. Skrivet språk har blivit mer eller mindre en förutsättning för människors dagliga kommunikation. Denna utveckling av samhället leder till ökade behov av att på olika sätt hantera text. READ MORE

  2. 2. Age and Constraints on Language Learning : First Language Retention and Second Language Acquisition in International Adoptees

    Author : Gunnar Norrman; Emanuel Bylund Spångberg; Guillaume Thierry; Janet Werker; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; bilingualism; critical period; electroencephalography; event-related potentials; first language retention; international adoption; phonology; second language acquisition; tvåspråkighet; Bilingualism;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the influence of age of acquisition on the long-term second language development of international adoptees. Because age of acquisition typically coincides with the onset of bilingualism, the study of maturational age effects in second language acquisition has been empirically and conceptually entangled with changes in language input and use.

  3. 3. Why the pond is not outside the frog? Grounding in contextual representations by neural language models

    Author : Mehdi Ghanimifard; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Computational linguistics; Language grounding; Spatial language; Distributional semantics; Computer vision; Language modelling; Vision and language; Neural language model; Grounded language model;

    Abstract : In this thesis, to build a multi-modal system for language generation and understanding, we study grounded neural language models. Literature in psychology informs us that spatial cognition involves different aspects of knowledge that include visual perception and human interaction with the world. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cross-language Ontology Learning : Incorporating and Exploiting Cross-language Data in the Ontology Learning Process

    Author : Hans Hjelm; Martin Volk; Joakim Nivre; Philipp Cimiano; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ontologies; Ontology learning; Distributional semantics; Knowledge acquisition; Text mining; Computational linguistics; Datorlingvistik; datorlingvistik; Computational Linguistics;

    Abstract : An ontology is a knowledge-representation structure, where words, terms or concepts are defined by their mutual hierarchical relations. Ontologies are becoming ever more prevalent in the world of natural language processing, where we currently see a tendency towards using semantics for solving a variety of tasks, particularly tasks related to information access.

  5. 5. Bilingual students' learning in science : Language, gestures and phyiscal artefacts

    Author : Zeynep Ünsal; Britt Jakobson; Per-Olof Wickman; Bengt-Olov Molander; Erik Knain; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; science education; bilingual students; mediating means; language; gestures; physical artefacts; learning; meaning-making; practical epistemological analysis; translanguaging; continuity; naturvetenskapsämnenas didaktik; Science Education;

    Abstract : The objective of this thesis is to examine how language, gestures and physical artefacts are used in science classes with emergent bilingual students who do not share the same minority language as their classmates or teachers. The purpose is to contribute to findings that can enhance emergent bilingual students’ learning in science. READ MORE
