The Ancient Language, and the Dialect of Cornwall, with an Enlarged Glossary of Cornish Provincial Words

By Frederick W.P. Jago

Containing around 3,700 dialect words from both Cornish and English,, this glossary was published in 1882 by Frederick W. P. Jago (1817–92) in an effort to describe and preserve the dialect as it too declined and it is an invaluable record of a disappearing dialect and way of life.

Title: A non-negative tensor factorization model for selectional preference induction
Author: Tim Van De Cruys
Institution: Université Paris Diderot - Paris 7
Linguistic Field: Semantics; Text/Corpus Linguistics
Abstract: The distributional similarity methods have proven to be a valuable tool for the induction of semantic similarity. Until now, most algorithms use two-way co-occurrence data to compute the meaning of words. Co-occurrence frequencies, however, need not be pairwise. One can easily imagine situations where it is desirable to investigate co-occurrence frequencies of three modes and beyond. This paper will investigate tensor factorization methods to build a model of three-way co-occurrences. The approach is applied to the problem of selectional preference induction, and automatically evaluated in a pseudo-disambiguation task. The results show that tensor factorization, and non-negative tensor factorization in particular, is a promising tool for Natural Language Processing (nlp).
