The MILE Corpus for Less Commonly Taught Languages
(Association for Computational Linguistics, 2006)
This paper describes a small, structured English corpus that is designed for translation into Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTLs), and a set of re-usable tools for creation of similar corpora. The corpus systematically ...
(Oxford University, 2008)
Certain grammatical patterns are found again and again in the languages of the world. Some of these patterns recur so frequently that they are given the label “universal”. Explaining the source of such patterns is clearly ...
Modeling contested categorization in linguistic databases
A fundamental problem in the design of linguistic databases is finding effective ways to encode content which is of a contested nature—that is, content which involves data for which there is no general consensus on how ...
Automatic Learning of Grammatical Encoding
Avenue (Probst et al., 2002, Monson et al., 2004, Lavie et al., 2003, Font-Llitjoset al.,2005)1 is a machine translation system that automatically learns translation rules between two languages. In the Avenue scenario, one ...

Slouching towards deponency: A family of mismatches in the Bantu verb stem
(Oxford University, 2007)
Most Bantu languages have a set of highly productive verbal derivational suffixes which alter the argument structure and semantics of basic verb roots. One example of such a suffix is the Causative, which gives a verb ...
Morphosyntax of Two Turkish Subject Pronominal Paradigms
(North East Linguistic Society, 2000)
This paper begins with a presentation of a split in the morphosyntactic behavior of two suffixing subject pronominal paradigms in Turkish in section 1. In section 2, we argue that this split is a result of one paradigm ...
Morphosyntactic reduplication in Chechen and Ingush
(Chicago Linguistic Society, 2001)
Chechen and Ingush, two closely related Nakh languages spoken in the northern Caucasus, exhibit an interesting verbal doubling construction which we claim is an example of morphosyntactic reduplication.
The Vowel Systems of California Hokan
While reconstructions of Proto-Hokan forms exist, it has not yet been possible to provide a detailed analysis of the sound changes required to relate reconstructed forms to attested forms. As a result, even though the ...
