Re: Query: Compounding and PDP
****************************************************************
Dear reader of Linguist,

Last year, we put a query on Linguist, asking for work done about the
interpretation of nominal compounds. Thanks to the many replies we got, we
managed to obtain the excellent dissertation of Mary Ellen Ryder (Ordered
Chaos: An Investigation of the Interpretation of English Noun-Noun
Compounds). Now, one year further, we are thinking of implementing a PDP
model like the one Ryder introduces in her work. However, it seems to us
that little work has yet been done on this. Since as far as we know, Ryder
does not have e-mail, we wanted to ask some general questions about this
matter:

- Do you know whether M.E. Ryder or anyone else for that sake has
made some kind of implementation of a compound interpretation model? In her
thesis, Ryder mentions some small implementation of which she doesn't
mention the results.

- If not, do you know of any other people that are working with PDP techniques,
particularly with a view to implementing morphology?

Many thanks in advance,

Does anybody know of recent work on uninflected tags like
HUH? and RIGHT? in the examples below?
 They're going to replace DOS, right?
 Then he's got to look for a job, huh?
Contact me directly and I'll summarize responses. Thanks.
