    Author : Mojgan Seraji; Joakim Nivre; Carina Jahani; Jan Hajic; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Persian; language technology; corpus; treebank; preprocessing; segmentation; part-of-speech tagging; dependency parsing; Computational Linguistics; Datorlingvistik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents open source resources in the form of annotated corpora and modules for automatic morphosyntactic processing and analysis of Persian texts. More specifically, the resources consist of an improved part-of-speech tagged corpus and a dependency treebank, as well as tools for text normalization, sentence segmentation, tokenization, part-of-speech tagging, and dependency parsing for Persian.

  2. 2. MaltParser -- An Architecture for Inductive Labeled Dependency Parsing

    University dissertation from Växjö : Matematiska och systemtekniska institutionen

    Author : Johan Hall; Joakim Nivre; Welf Löwe; Martin Volk; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dependency Parsing; Support Vector Machines; Machine Learning; HUMANITIES and RELIGION Languages and linguistics Linguistic subjects Language technology; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Språkvetenskap Lingvistikämnen Språkteknologi; Computer and Information Sciences Computer Science; Data- och informationsvetenskap;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis presents a software architecture for inductive labeled dependency parsing of unrestricted natural language text, which achieves a strict modularization of parsing algorithm, feature model and learning method such that these parameters can be varied independently. The architecture is based on the theoretical framework of inductive dependency parsing by Nivre \citeyear{nivre06c} and has been realized in MaltParser, a system that supports several parsing algorithms and learning methods, for which complex feature models can be defined in a special description language.

    Abstract : The present thesis discusses the history and meaning of the term and concept called grammaticalisation. Linguists usually ascribe the coinage of the term grammaticalisation to Antoine Meillet (1866-1936), who allegedly played a vital role in the history of grammaticalisation. READ MORE

  5. 5. A View from Language : Growth of language in individuals and populations

    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Scandinavia; psycho-linguistics; past tense; linguistic ecology; language variation; language change; language acquisition; evolution; epidemics; emergence; diffusion; connectionism; area linguistics; case; simulation; synthesis.; Linguistics; Lingvistik;

    Abstract : The main question that this book tries to find answers to is what it is that makes language learnable. Language is one of the most complex human activities, but nearly 100% of humanity have learned a language in childhood. One answer could be that it is something in our brain that makes us learn language better than most other activities. READ MORE
