The Syntax-Morphology Interface: A Study of Syncretism (Cambridge Studies in Linguistics)

Syncretism--where a unmarried shape serves or extra morphosyntactic functions--is a chronic challenge on the syntax-morphology interface. It effects from a 'mismatch', wherein the syntax of a language makes a selected contrast, however the morphology doesn't. This pioneering publication presents the 1st full-length research of inflectional syncretism, offering a typology of its incidence throughout quite a lot of languages.

The Abject Object: Avatars of the Phallus in Contemporary French Theory, Literature and Film

This publication addresses representations and buildings of masculinity in main issue in modern French tradition in terms of very important techniques – the phallus (largely yet now not completely in (a) Lacanian sense(s)) and abjection (Kristeva). Scrutiny of those ideas informs readings of a few texts – literary (Bataille, Adamov, Doubrovsky, Houellebecq, Rochefort, Angot) and cinematic (Ferreri, Eustache, Godard, Noé, Bonello) – within which the abject phallus is a significant component.

When moving further to feature set 3 (which includes a higher number of low frequency PP features) KNN worsens clearly (c. 5% in accuracy and F-measure) while the other methods perform similarly. With sparser feature sets 4-5, KNN, PC SVM and ME show similar performance than with feature set 3 (the changes in SVM and ME are not statistically significant). 5 F-measure). 9 F-measure. 4σ and 2σ level, respectively. The resampling results in table 3 reveal that some classifiers perform worse than others when less training data is available3 .

The closest comparison point is the recent experiment reported in [5] which involved classifying 835 English 26 L. Sun, A. Korhonen, and Y. Krymolowski verbs to 14 Levin classes using SVM. Features were specifically selected via analysis of alternations that are used to characterize Levin classes. Both (i) shallow syntactic features (syntactic slots obtained using a chunker) and (ii) deep ones (SCFs extracted using Briscoe and Carroll’s system) were used. The accuracy was 58% with (i) and only 38% with (ii).
