Corpus-Based and Computational Approaches to Discourse by Simon Philip Botley, Tony McEnery

By Simon Philip Botley, Tony McEnery

Discourse anaphora is a difficult linguistic phenomenon that has given upward push to investigate in fields as varied as linguistics, computational linguistics and cognitive technological know-how. as a result of range of methods those fields deliver to the anaphora challenge, the editors of this quantity argue that there has to be a synthesis, or at the very least a principled try to draw the differing strands of anaphora study jointly. the chosen papers during this quantity all give a contribution to the purpose of synthesis and have been chosen to symbolize the growing to be significance of corpus-based and computational methods to anaphora description, and to constructing common language structures for resolving anaphora in common language.

On Apologising in Negative and Positive Politeness Cultures

This booklet investigates how audio system of English, Polish and Russian take care of offensive events.

The Language of Memory in a Crosslinguistic Perspective

Example text

As Sampson (in Garside, Leech & Sampson 1987) points out, a major feature of many non-corpus-based computer systems that used knowledgebased techniques is that they only work with small, domain-dependent language subsets such as the vocabulary of moon-rock samples. Fully-developed corpusbased systems, on the other hand, will be able to handle large amounts of often ungrammatical, messy and incomplete language. Such language conforms to Chomsky’s own definition of performance data (Chomsky 1965), but has a less marginal status than is the case within the Chomskyan paradigm.
