    • Bayesian Synchronous Tree-Substitution Grammar Induction and Its Application to Sentence Compression 

      Yamangil, Elif; Shieber, Stuart M. (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2010)
      We describe our experiments with training algorithms for tree-to-tree synchronous tree-substitution grammar (STSG) for monolingual translation tasks such as sentence compression and paraphrasing. These translation tasks ...
    • A Context Free TAG Variant 

      Swanson, Ben; Yamangil, Elif; Charniak, Eugene; Shieber, Stuart M. (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2013)
    • Correction Detection and Error Type Selection as an ESL Educational Aid 

      Swanson, Ben; Yamangil, Elif (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2012)
      We present a classifier that discriminates between types of corrections made by teachers of English in student essays. We define a set of linguistically motivated feature templates for a log-linear classification model, ...
    • Estimating Compact Yet Rich Tree Insertion Grammars 

      Yamangil, Elif; Shieber, Stuart M. (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2012)
      We present a Bayesian nonparametric model for estimating tree insertion grammars (TIG), building upon recent work in Bayesian inference of tree substitution grammars (TSG) via Dirichlet processes. Under our general variant ...
    • Mining Wikipedia's Article Revision History for Training Computational Linguistics Algorithms 

      Nelken, Rani; Yamangil, Elif (AAAI Press, 2008)
      We present a novel paradigm for obtaining large amounts of training data for computational linguistics tasks by mining Wikipedia's article revision history. By comparing adjacent versions of the same article, we extract ...
    • Nonparametric Bayesian Inference and Efficient Parsing for Tree-adjoining Grammars 

      Yamangil, Elif; Shieber, Stuart M. (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2013)
      In the line of research extending statistical parsing to more expressive grammar formalisms, we demonstrate for the first time the use of tree-adjoining grammars (TAG). We present a Bayesian nonparametric model for estimating ...
    • Rich Linguistic Structure from Large-Scale Web Data 

      Yamangil, Elif (2013-10-18)
      The past two decades have shown an unexpected effectiveness of Web-scale data in natural language processing. Even the simplest models, when paired with unprecedented amounts of unstructured and unlabeled Web data, have ...
