Deep Lexical Acquisition

Tim Baldwin

University of Melbourne

Abstract:

Deep lexical acquisition is the task of classifying lexemes for predefined linguistic properties, in line with the requirements of a deep lexical resource such as a precision grammar or wordnet. In this talk, I will present a series of lexical acquisition experiments on languages including Malay and Wambaya, and also discuss ongoing work on assessing the impact of automatically-learned lexical items on precision grammars.
