  1. 1. Why the pond is not outside the frog? Grounding in contextual representations by neural language models

    Författare :Mehdi Ghanimifard; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computational linguistics; Language grounding; Spatial language; Distributional semantics; Computer vision; Language modelling; Vision and language; Neural language model; Grounded language model;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, to build a multi-modal system for language generation and understanding, we study grounded neural language models. Literature in psychology informs us that spatial cognition involves different aspects of knowledge that include visual perception and human interaction with the world. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Authentic Language : Övdalsk, metapragmatic exchange and the margins of Sweden’s linguistic market

    Författare :David Karlander; Kenneth Hyltenstam; Christopher Stroud; Tomas Riad; Judith T. Irvine; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; authenticity; history of linguistic thought; indexicality; linguistic anthropology; linguistic minorities; metalanguage; metapragmatics; philosophical anthropology; Övdalsk; autenticitet; filosofisk antropologi; indexikalitet; lingvistisk antropologi; metaspråk; metapragmatik; språkliga minoriteter; språkvetenskapens idéhistoria; älvdalska; Bilingualism; tvåspråkighet;

    Sammanfattning : This compilation thesis engages with practices that in some way place stakes in the social existence of Övdalsk (also älvdalska, Elfdalian, Övdalian), a marginal form of Scandinavian used mainly in Sweden’s Älvdalen municipality. The practices at hand range from early 20th century descriptive dialectology and contemporary lay-linguistics to language advocacy and language political debate. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Språk, diaspora, makt : Flerspråkiga resurser och diasporaidentiteter bland unga vuxna i Sverige

    Författare :Josefina Eliaso Magnusson; Christopher Stroud; Disa Bergnehr; Tommaso Milani; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; multilingualism; young adults; language ideology; linguistic anthropology; sociolinguistics; diaspora; power; habitus; identities; Bilingualism; tvåspråkighet;

    Sammanfattning : Based on three separate studies, this thesis explores diaspora identities among young adult Assyrians/Syrians in Sweden, mediated through language. The focus is on how multilingual young adults use their languages and reflect on their use of language. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The language learning infant: Effects of speech input, vocal output, and feedback

    Författare :Lisa Gustavsson; Francisco Lacerda; Roger Moore; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; human; language; language acquisition; perception; production; humanoid; development; model; embodied system; speech signal processing; vocal tract morphology; acoustic; speech input; information processing; scaling; interaction; growth; infant; imitation; feedback; perceptual salience; modeling; Phonetics; Fonetik; Phonetics; fonetik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis studies the characteristics of the acoustic signal in speech, especially in speech directed to infants and in infant vocal development, to gain insight on essential aspects of speech processing, speech production and communicative interaction in early language acquisition. Three sets of experimental studies are presented in this thesis. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Splitting rocks: Learning word sense representations from corpora and lexica

    Författare :Luis Nieto Piña; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; language technology; natural language processing; distributional models; semantic representations; distributed representations; word senses; embeddings; word sense disambiguation; linguistic resources; corpus; lexicon; machine learning; neural networks;

    Sammanfattning : The representation of written language semantics is a central problem of language technology and a crucial component of many natural language processing applications, from part-of-speech tagging to text summarization. These representations of linguistic units, such as words or sentences, allow computer applications that work with language to process and manipulate the meaning of text. LÄS MER
