Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-Based Approach

By Thomas Hoffmann

This is the first study that empirically investigates preposition placement across all clause types. The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes. Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'

Title: Supertagging
Subtitle: Using Complex Lexical Descriptions in Natural Language Processing
Edited By: Srinivas Bangalore
Aravind K. Joshi
URL: http://mitpress.mit.edu/9780262013871
Description:

The last decade has seen computational implementations of large
hand-crafted natural language grammars in formal frameworks such as
Tree-Adjoining Grammar (TAG), Combinatory Categorical Grammar (CCG),
Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), and Lexical Functional Grammar
(LFG). Grammars in these frameworks typically associate linguistically
motivated rich descriptions (Supertags) with words. With the availability
of parse-annotated corpora, grammars in the TAG and CCG frameworks have
also been automatically extracted while maintaining the linguistic
relevance of the extracted Supertags. In these frameworks, Supertags are
designed so that complex linguistic constraints are localized to operate
within the domain of those descriptions. While this localization increases
local ambiguity, the process of disambiguation (Supertagging) provides a
unique way of combining linguistic and statistical information.

This volume investigates the theme of employing statistical approaches with
linguistically motivated representations and its impact on Natural Language
Processing tasks. In particular, the contributors describe research in
which words are associated with Supertags that are the primitives of
different grammar formalisms including Lexicalized Tree-Adjoining Grammar
(LTAG).
