Creativity and Universality in Language by Mirko Degli Esposti, Eduardo G. Altmann, Francois Pachet

By Mirko Degli Esposti, Eduardo G. Altmann, Francois Pachet

This ebook collects study contributions pertaining to quantitative ways to signify originality and universality in language. the objective viewers includes researchers and specialists within the box however the ebook can also be worthwhile for graduate students.

Creativity should be regarded as a morphogenetic procedure combining common beneficial properties with originality. whereas quantitative tools utilized to textual content and song demonstrate common good points of language and tune, originality is a hugely preferred characteristic of authors, composers, and performers.

during this framework, the several tools of conventional difficulties of authorship attribution and rfile class supply vital insights on tips to quantify the original gains of authors, composers, and kinds. Such detailed positive factors distinction, and are limited by way of, common signatures, equivalent to scaling legislation in word-frequency distribution, entropy measures, long-range correlations, between others. This interaction among innovation and universality can be a vital component of equipment for automated textual content generation.

Innovation in language turns into proper while it truly is imitated and unfold to different audio system and musicians. glossy electronic databases supply new possibilities to signify and version the construction and evolution of linguistic strategies on old time scales, a very vital instance of the extra normal challenge of spreading of suggestions in advanced social systems.

This multidisciplinary e-book combines scientists from a number of varied backgrounds drawn to quantitative research of diversifications (synchronic and diachronic) in language and tune. the purpose is to acquire a deeper figuring out of the way originality emerges, could be quantified, and propagates.

Language, Cohesion and Form (Studies in Natural Language Processing)

As a pioneer in computational linguistics, operating within the earliest days of language processing by way of laptop, Margaret Masterman believed that that means, now not grammar, used to be the most important to figuring out languages, and that machines may perhaps verify the which means of sentences. This quantity brings jointly Masterman's groundbreaking papers for the 1st time, demonstrating the significance of her paintings within the philosophy of technological know-how and the character of iconic languages.

This research explores the layout and alertness of average language text-based processing structures, in line with generative linguistics, empirical copus research, and synthetic neural networks. It emphasizes the sensible instruments to deal with the chosen approach

Example text

The analysis was done using the first 500 most informative words and only the 1 % strongest connections were kept. To verify that all these connections were statistically significant, the similarity matrix was evaluated repeatedly on randomised frequency vectors, in which the indices corresponding to the partitions of the text were shuffled independently for each vector. The procedure allowed us to compute a p-value for every connection, given by the fraction of times the connection of the randomised realisation was equal to or higher than that from the original text.
