19 May 2015, Special CLS workshop on Statistical Models of Grammaticality

Date: Tuesday 19 May 2015
Time: 13:00-
Location: Room F1.15, ILLC, Science Park 107, Amsterdam

The CLS is happy to announce three talks about Statistical Models of Grammaticality studied within the SMOG project at King's College London. SMOG is exploring the construction of an enriched stochastic model that represents the syntactic knowledge that native speakers of English have of their language. We are experimenting with different sorts of language models that contain a variety of parameters encoding properties of sentences and probability distributions over corpora.

Speakers:
Alex Clark: On his work on theoretical results for grammar induction
Shalom Lappin: Experimental work on identifying gradience in speakers' representation of syntactic knowledge
Jey Han Lau: Experiments with unsupervised language models to predict speakers' syntactic acceptability judgements
