Download Grammatik als Netzwerk von Konstruktionen: Sprachwissen im by Alexander Lasch,Alexander Ziem PDF

By Alexander Lasch,Alexander Ziem

Anhand von exemplarischen Analysen gehen die Beiträge in diesem Band grundlegenden Forschungsfragen nach, die sich aus der Konzeption von Grammatik als Netzwerk von Konstruktionen ergeben: Sprachliches Wissen setzt sich aus einem strukturierten Set an Form-Bedeutungspaaren (Konstruktionen) zusammen, das guy als Netzwerk bzw. Konstruktikon auffassen kann. Relevante Aspekte betreffen theoretische und empirische Fragen zur Repräsentation von grammatischem Wissen in einem Netzwerk von Konstruktionen, konkrete Anwendungsbereiche in den Bereichen Morphologie, Syntax und Spracherwerb unter Einbeziehung synchroner und diachroner Untersuchungsgesichtspunkte sowie Möglichkeiten, die Konstruktionsgrammatik mit anderen, teilweise verwandten, teilweise konkurrierenden Ansätzen und Grammatiktheorien (FrameNet, Integrative Linguistik, HPSG, projektionsbasierte Ansätze) in den conversation treten zu lassen.
Der Band richtet sich sowohl an ein fachkundiges Publikum als auch an jene, die sich für die Konstruktionsgrammatik interessieren und einen ersten Zugang zu gebrauchsbasierten Ansätzen suchen.

By H. Bunt,Anton Nijholt

Parsing expertise is anxious with discovering syntactic constitution in language. In parsing we need to take care of incomplete and never inevitably actual formal descriptions of common languages. Robustness and potency are one of the major issuesin parsing. Corpora can be utilized to acquire frequency information regarding language use. this permits probabilistic parsing, an method that goals at either robustness and potency raise. Approximation strategies, to be utilized on the point of language description, parsing technique, and syntactic illustration, have an identical goal. Approximation on the point of syntactic illustration is additionally often called underspecification, a standard strategy to care for syntactic ambiguity.
during this e-book new parsing applied sciences are amassed that target at attacking the issues of robustness and potency via precisely those ideas: the layout of probabilistic grammars and effective probabilistic parsing algorithms, approximation concepts utilized to grammars and parsers to extend parsing potency, and methods for underspecification and the combination of semantic details within the syntactic research to house big ambiguity.
The publication supplies a state of the art evaluation of present study and improvement in parsing applied sciences. In its chapters we see how probabilistic equipment have entered the toolbox of computational linguistics that allows you to be utilized in either parsing idea and parsing perform. The publication is either a distinct reference for researchers and an creation to the sphere for graduate students.
