LTI Grammars and Lexicons

• Q/A on Grammar Writing Project

• Q/A sessions by TA

• Equations

• Finish Japanese Grammar exercise (jpn.gra)

• Start a new grammar

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

• The word *UNDEFINED* and *DEFINED* can be used on the right hand side of an equation.

• *UNDEFINED* makes sure that the left hand side of the equation has no value.

• *DEFINED* makes sure that the left hand side of the equation has a value.

((x1 negation) = *UNDEFINED*)

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

• Multiple values can be assigned to a feature.

• Use the grater-than sign (>) in place of the equal sign.

• If the following rule applies recursively, the pp-adjunct function will have several different values at the same time:

(<S> <==> (<S> <PP>)

((x0 = x1)

((x0 pp-adjunct) > x2))) ; This rule should come last.

• Multiple rule is sensitive to rule ordering

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

Grammar Exercise (Japanese Grammar)

• Free word-order language

• SOV language

• Case markers determine grammatical relations

(ga, wo, ni, de, etc)

• Grammar file: jpn.gra

• Test files: jpn-test1.lisp

Sunday on Hideki NOM New York to go PAST

“Hideki went to New York on Sunday.”

Nichiyoubi niNyuuyooku eHideki ga itta.

Hideki ganichiyoubi niNyuuyooku e itta.

Hideki gaNyuuyooku enichiyoubi ni itta.

Nyuuyooku eHideki ganichiyoubi ni itta.

Nyuuyooku enichiyoubi niHideki ga itta.

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

Hideki gaNyuuyooku e itta

Nyuuyooku eHideki ga itta

Nichiyoubi niNyuuyooku e itta

Nyuuyooku enichiyoubi ni itta

Hideki ganichiyoubi ni itta

Nichiyoubi niHideki ga itta

Hideki ga itta

Nyuuyooku e itta

Nichiyoubi ni itta

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

Nichiyoubi ni Ichiro ga hoomuran wo utta.

Sunday on Ichiro NOM home run ACC hit-PAST

“Ichiro hit a home run on Sunday.”

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

• You can’t have two nominatives or accusatives in a sentence. (jpn-test1.lisp)

*Hideki ga nichiyoubi ga itta

*Hideki ga Hideki ga itta

*Hideki ga hoomuran ga utta

*Hideki wo hoomuran wo utta

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

• Use of recursive rules

(<S> < == > (<NP> <S>)

(<S> < == > (<V>)

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

S

NP S

NP S

N P N P V

Hideki gaNyuuyooku e itta

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

• “ni” is ambiguous in Japanese

Time-on, Loc-to

Nichiyoubi ni itta (went on Sunday)

Nyuuyooku ni itta (went to New York)

• “ni” and “e” can be used for Loc-to

Nyuuyooku ni/e itta (went to New York)

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

• Grammar file:

/afs/cs/project/cmt-55/lti/Lab/Modules/GNL721/2007/jpn.gra

• Test file:

jpn-test1.lisp

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

• “ni” is ambiguous in Japanese

Time-on, Loc-to

Nichiyoubi ni itta (went on Sunday)

Nyuuyooku ni itta (went to New York)

• “ni” and “e” can be used for Loc-to

Nyuuyooku ni/e itta (went to New York)

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

• “de” is Loc-in/Loc-at with action verbs

Nyuuyooku de tabeta (ate in New York)

CMU de tabeta (ate at CMU)

Nyuuyooku de hoomuran wo utta

(hit hoomuran in New York)

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

“itta (went)” doesn’t take Loc-at/in “de”

*Nyuuyooku de itta (*went in/at New York)

“tabeta (ate)” doesn’t take Loc-to “ni/e”

*Nyuuyooku ni/e tabeta (*ate to New York)

Time expression doesn’t take Loc-at, Loc-to

*Nichiyoubi de/e itta (*went at/to Sunday)

*Nichiyoubi de/e utta (*hit at/to Sunday)

*Nichiyoubi de/e tabeta (*ate at/to Sunday)

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

• Wrong case marker (jpn-test2.lisp)

Nyuuyooku ni/e itta (Loc-to)

*Nyuuyooku de itta (Loc-at)

Nyuuyooku de tabeta (Loc-at)

*Nyuuyooku ni/e tabeta (Loc-to)

Nichiyoubi ni itta/tabeta (Time-on)

*Nichiyoubi de itta/tabeta (Loc-at)

*Nichiyoubi e itta/tabeta (Loc-to)

LTI Grammars and Lexicons

• Grammar file:

/afs/cs/project/cmt-55/lti/Lab/Modules/GNL721/2007/jpn.gra

• Test file:

jpn-test2.lisp

• Work on test2 and test-fail2

• Run test1 to see if it is still working
