  • A public platform for developing language-independent applications
    • Authors: Agarwal V; Kumar P.
      Pages: 1 - 5
      Abstract: AbstractThis article describes the research and development (R&D) work done as an extension to the multilingual cross-domain client application prototype for UNL-ization and NL-ization for natural language processing (NLP) application developed by Agarwal and Kumar (A multilingual cross-domain client application prototype for UNL-ization and NL-ization for NLP applications. Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, 2016)11. A common platform has been developed and made live for worldwide users where they can share their Interactive Analyzer and EUGENE (dEep-to-sUrface GENErator) resources and exploit already shared resources by other users for UNL-ization and NL-ization. This article also highlights that how the existing platform can be used by other researchers and developers to make their UNL-based Web applications language-independent and can make it available to computational linguists, researchers, developers, and general audience globally. Such kind of platform is definitely useful for all UNL-based R&D activities being done throughout the geography. The platform gives 100% accuracy. However, the correctness depends on the F-measure of the respective Analysis and Generation module being used.

  • Presenting the Bangor Autoglosser and the Bangor Automated Clause-Splitter
    • Authors: Carter D; Broersma M, Donnelly K, et al.
      Pages: 21 - 28
      Abstract: AbstractUntil recently, corpus studies of natural bilingual speech and, more specifically, codeswitching in bilingual speech have used a manual method of glossing, part-of-speech tagging, and clause-splitting to prepare the data for analysis. In our article, we present innovative tools developed for the first large-scale corpus study of codeswitching triggered by cognates. A study of this size was only possible due to the automation of several steps, such as morpheme-by-morpheme glossing, splitting complex clauses into simple clauses, and the analysis of internal and external codeswitching through the use of database tables, algorithms, and a scripting language.

  • Crowd-authoring versus peer-reviewing: An epistemic clash in the field of
           educational technology
    • Authors: Al Lily A.
      Pages: 29 - 45
      Abstract: AbstractA mediator invited 101 academics from around the world to work together by email, over three rounds, to author a manuscript, in an attempt to establish the first ‘crowd-authored’ paper. Once the paper was finalized, it was submitted for publication to fifty-one accredited journals. However, the journals rejected the paper. The current article offers a critique of this negative experience, in reference to previous research and in consultation with the 101 authors. This critique highlights possible factors that may encourage journals to decline manuscripts authored by a large number of people. An awareness of such possible factors would be beneficial for other academics undertaking crowd-authoring projects. A main contribution of the present article is that it provides a debate about the cultural and political ramifications of crowd-authoring, a phenomenon that is expected to soon enter the academic discourse.

  • More news on Sir Thomas More
    • Authors: Ilsemann H.
      Pages: 46 - 58
      Abstract: AbstractThis article deals with Rolling Delta and Rolling Classify authorship attributions in the apocryphal play Sir Thomas More. Conflicting results were overcome by extracting stable information from the tested range of diverse parameter results of Rolling Delta, and by establishing majority attributions of the text chunks with Rolling Classify. Both approaches were applied to the well-recognized 1911 edition of the play, prepared by W. Greg. This followed the given folio sequence 3a–22a and then made the various additions. Each of the additions was not long enough to establish convincing results as to its authorship, but the folio sequences of the original text could be analysed with larger and reliable window sizes, revealing Samuel Rowley and William Shakespeare as authors. The long-standing claim that Munday or Chettle is the author of the original text of the play proved to be unsustainable. As far as the conventional dating is concerned, an earlier analysis of Thomas of Woodstock, largely written by Rowley, and in part by Shakespeare, points, if later revisions are disregarded, to the period 1592–93.

  • Blue eyes and porcelain cheeks: Computational extraction of physical
           descriptions from Dutch chick lit and literary novels
    • Authors: Koolen C; van Cranenburgh A.
      Pages: 59 - 71
      Abstract: AbstractAttentiveness to physical appearance is seen as an important motif in chick lit. However, this has never been researched in an actual comparison with literary novels. Our goal is to make a comparison between the two genres concerning the importance of physical appearance of characters. In this article, as a first step in researching this topic, we consider the task of identifying sentences that contain descriptions of a character’s physical appearance in a set of novels in both genres. We manually annotate sentences where the appearance of a character is described. We then apply a machine learning methodology and manually written lexical–syntactic queries to automate the extraction of these sentences. Contrary to our expectations, the queries outperform the classifier. When we use a combination of the two automated methods, the extraction of physical descriptions from chick lit is more successful. This suggests that such descriptions are more uniform in character.

  • Detecting pseudepigraphic texts using novel similarity measures
    • Authors: Koppel M; Seidman S.
      Pages: 72 - 81
      Abstract: AbstractThe identification of pseudepigraphic texts—texts not written by the authors to which they are attributed—has important historical, forensic, and commercial applications. Any method for identifying such pseudepigrapha must ultimately depend on some measure of a given document’s similarity to the other documents in a corpus. We show that for this purpose, second-order document similarity measures taken from the authorship verification literature strongly outperform standard document similarity measures commonly used for outlier identification. We apply these improved methods to two famous corpora suspected of including pseudepigrapha: Shakespeare’s plays and Pauline epistles.

  • Syntactic patterns in classical Chinese poems: A quantitative study
    • Authors: Lee J; Kong Y, Luo M.
      Pages: 82 - 95
      Abstract: AbstractIt is widely believed that different parts of a classical Chinese poem vary in syntactic properties. The middle part is usually parallel, i.e. the two lines in a couplet have similar sentence structure and part of speech; in contrast, the beginning and final parts tend to be non-parallel. Imagistic language, dominated by noun phrases evoking images, is concentrated in the middle; propositional language, with more complex grammatical structures, is more often found at the end. We present the first quantitative analysis on these linguistic phenomena—syntactic parallelism, imagistic language, and propositional language—on a treebank of selected poems from the Complete Tang Poems. Written during the Tang Dynasty between the 7th and 9th centuries CE, these poems are often considered the pinnacle of classical Chinese poetry. Our analysis affirms the traditional observation that the final couplet is rarely parallel; the middle couplets are more frequently parallel, especially at the phrase rather than the word level. Further, the final couplet more often takes a non-declarative mood, uses function words, and adopts propositional language. In contrast, the beginning and middle couplets employ more content words and tend toward imagistic language.

  • The semantic poles of Old English: Toward the 3D representation of complex
    • Authors: Martín Arista J.
      Pages: 96 - 111
      Abstract: AbstractThis article explains some aspects of the verbal polysemy of Old English by means of the concept of semantic pole, an area of semantic space that represents a core meaning. It draws on the semantic primes of the natural semantic metalanguage, the theoretical constructs of semantic space, and force dynamics as well as semantic maps based on graph theory. In the semantic map, graphs link poles to definiens and lexical nodes, in such a way that the centrality of the poles is indicated, quantitatively, by the number of edges and, qualitatively, by the distance between the pole that exerts the centrifugal force and the pole to which such a force is directed. The conclusion is reached that the semantic poles MOVE, BE, and SAY constitute the core of the verbal lexicon of Old English, considering the semantic space that they occupy and the centrifugal and centripetal forces that produce polysemy originating in these semantic poles.

  • A metrical scansion system for fixed-metre Spanish poetry
    • Authors: Navarro-Colorado B.
      Pages: 112 - 127
      Abstract: AbstractIn this article an automatic scansion model for fixed-metre Spanish poetry is presented. It is a hybrid model that combines hand-made rules with probabilistic information. Through the set of rules, the model is able to extract the syllabic structure of each word, to classify them as stressed or unstressed and to resolve metrical phenomena such as synaloephas or diaereses. The article is mainly focused on the metrical ambiguities produced by synaloephas: verse lines from which it is possible to derive two or more metrical patterns. This metrical ambiguity is resolved through probabilities, assuming a relation between high probabilities and metricality. The system has been evaluated through more than 1,000 lines extracted from a corpus of Golden-Age Spanish sonnets. An accuracy of 95% has been achieved, resulting in not only considerable progress if we compare it to previous proposals, but also in an adequate way of performing the task when compared to human performance.

  • Harmony in diversity: The language codes in English–Chinese poetry
    • Authors: Pan X; Chen X, Liu H.
      Pages: 128 - 142
      Abstract: AbstractTranslating poetry is a very complex process. The paradoxical nature of untranslatability and translatability of poetry has been noticed by Hai An (The translation of poetry by the translator-cum-poet. Chinese Translator Journals 2005; 6: 27–30), citing two famous scholars who are holding totally different opinions toward poetry translation. Robert Frost purports that ‘poetry is what gets lost in translation’, and Susan Bassnet advocates ‘poetry is what we gain in translation’. However, the common ground between these two drastic opinions is that poetry translation is no more a repetition of the original works than a reproduction. There are both similarities and discrepancies between the translated works and the original pieces, or in another word: ‘harmony in diversity’. This study aims to testify the above-mentioned proposal in a clear and objective manner, by comparing the original poetry texts (twenty randomly selected poems from Shakespearean sonnets) with their translated versions (the corresponding Chinese-translated versions by four different translators) from the perspective of vocabulary, word frequency distribution and part-of-speech (POS) frequency distribution. The results have corroborated the previous proposal: first, there is no significant difference in terms of vocabulary size and the text management styles between the translated poems and the original ones. Second, there is a significant difference in the word frequency distribution and POS frequency distribution between translated poems and the original ones. Third, there are also differences in the POS frequency distribution in poems translated by different authors. Furthermore, the translation style could distinguish professional translators from professional poets.

  • Analysis of the style and the rhetoric of the 2016 US presidential
    • Authors: Savoy J.
      Pages: 143 - 159
      Abstract: AbstractThis present article examines the verbal style and rhetoric of the candidates of the 2016 US presidential primary elections. To achieve this objective, this study analyzes the oral communication forms used by the candidates during the TV debates. When considering the most frequent lemmas, the candidates can be split into two groups, one using more frequently the pronoun ‘I’, and the second favoring more the ‘we’ (which corresponds to candidates leaving the presidential run sooner). According to several overall stylistic indicators, candidate Trump clearly adopted a simple and direct communication style, avoiding complex formulation and vocabulary. From a topical perspective, our analysis generates a map showing the affinities between candidates. This investigation results in the presence of three distinct groups of candidates, the first one with the Democrats (Clinton, O’Malley, and Sanders), the second with three Republicans (Bush, Cruz, Rubio), and the last with the duo Trump and Kasich, with, at a small distance, Paul. The over-used terms and typical sentences associated with each candidate reveal their specific topics such as ‘simple flat tax’ for Cruz, ‘balanced budget’ for Kasich, negativity with Trump, or critiques against large corporations and Wall Street for Sanders.

  • Rethinking the concept of an ‘Author’ in the face of digital
           technology advances: A perspective from the copyright law of a
           commonwealth country
    • Authors: Tay P; Sik C, Chan W.
      Pages: 160 - 172
      Abstract: AbstractAs society continues to embrace advances in digital technologies, a major question that arises is the impact which such technologies have on the concept of an ‘author’ under copyright law. Prior to the advent of the user-generated content (UGC) technology, creative works on the Internet were produced by one or several identifiable authors. The advent of the UGC technology has enabled the active authorial participation of Internet users. This has made it possible for massively collaborative works on the Internet to mushroom where numerous authors’ contributions are incrementally merged into an extensive single work. The concept of an ‘author’ under copyright law is premised on the basis that a work has one or several finite authors. Many UGC works defy this traditional mode of creating works. Taking Malaysian copyright law as the focal point of this study, the research examines whether the concept of an ‘author’ as defined in the Malaysian Copyright Act 1987 is sufficient to address the authorship issue in the light of the UGC technology. It concludes that the current concept of an ‘author’ in the Act is ill-equipped to accommodate Internet-based collaborations. It recommends the introduction of the concept of a ‘deemed author’ in copyright law and suggests that the status of a ‘deemed author’ be conferred on the entity who controls and determines the configuration of the resulting work.

  • Transcribing a 17th-century botanical manuscript: Longitudinal evaluation
           of document layout detection and interactive transcription
    • Authors: Toselli A; Leiva L, Bordes-Cabrera I, et al.
      Pages: 173 - 202
      Abstract: AbstractWe present a process for cost-effective transcription of cursive handwritten text images that has been tested on a 1,000-page 17th-century book about botanical species. The process comprised two main tasks, namely: (1) preprocessing: page layout analysis, text line detection, and extraction; and (2) transcription of the extracted text line images. Both tasks were carried out with semiautomatic procedures, aimed at incrementally minimizing user correction effort, by means of computer-assisted line detection and interactive handwritten text recognition technologies. The contribution derived from this work is three-fold. First, we provide a detailed human-supervised transcription of a relatively large historical handwritten book, ready to be searchable, indexable, and accessible to cultural heritage scholars as well as the general public. Second, we have conducted the first longitudinal study to date on interactive handwriting text recognition, for which we provide a very comprehensive user assessment of the real-world performance of the technologies involved in this work. Third, as a result of this process, we have produced a detailed transcription and document layout information (i.e. high-quality labeled data) ready to be used by researchers working on automated technologies for document analysis and recognition.

  • ‘Proper’ pro-nun-ʃha-ʃhun1 in Eighteenth-Century English: ECEP as a
           New Tool for the Study of Historical Phonology and Dialectology
    • Authors: Yáñez-Bouza N; Beal J, Sen R, et al.
      Pages: 203 - 227
      Abstract: AbstractEnglish historical linguists have often complained about the scholarly neglect of the phonology of the Late Modern English period; yet, the value of pronouncing dictionaries as rich and reliable evidence has been demonstrated (Beal, J. C., 1999, English Pronunciation in the Eighteenth Century: Thomas Spence’s Grand Repository of the English Language (1775). Oxford: Clarendon Press; Jones, C., 2006, English Pronunciation in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries. Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan). This article presents a new electronic, searchable database of ‘Eighteenth-Century English Phonology’ (ECEP) which aims to facilitate research on the social, regional, and lexical distribution of phonological variants in 18th-century English, as documented in contemporary pronouncing dictionaries. Taking Wells’ (1982, Accents of English. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press) lexical sets for the vowel system of present-day varieties of English as its reference, the database provides unicode IPA transcriptions for the relevant segment of each word given as an example of lexical (sub)set in his account of standard lexical sets, to which we have added some complementary consonant sets. These will be of use for comparative studies with 19th-century and present-day English. First, we describe the methodology and contents of ECEP: primary source selection, data input and annotation, the web-based interface. Second, we report on two case studies that demonstrate the value of evidence that can be systematically extracted from ECEP for the analysis of segmental and suprasegmental phonology; these are variations in the pronunciation of ‘wh’ in the set whale (/hw/∼/w/∼/h/), and the palatalization of alveolar consonants before /uː/. Thus, this article will demonstrate the viability of ECEP for historical phonology, dialectology, and sociolinguistics, and will help to promote the use of databases as key resources in historical linguistics.

  • Digitizing Lefebvre’s Spatial Triad
    • Authors: Baydar G; Komesli M, Yılmaz A, et al.
      Pages: 6 - 20
      Abstract: AbstractDigitizing Lefebvre’s Spatial Triad is conceived as a seed project for an interdisciplinary analysis of the built environment via digital media. Two social housing projects in İzmir are chosen as case studies as an initial step to be developed toward a potentially international digital platform. The theoretical premises of the project are based on the renowned cultural theorist Henri Lefebvre’s Spatial Triad, which distinguishes between representations of space, representational spaces or spaces of representation, and spatial practices. Following this framework, the collected data are organized in three sections, which are reflected in the digital interface. These are respectively titled, ‘implementations’, which contains architectural drawings and visual recordings of interviews with the chief architect of the projects; ‘perceptions’, which includes related texts that are scanned from Web sites, newspapers, journals, and conference proceedings; and ‘lived experiences’, which contains photographs and visual records of on-site interviews with the users of the two housing estates. Users of the digital interface are enabled access to data in each category by means of choosing one of eighty-three related keywords. The latter are derived from the digital analyses of discursive material. By enabling the comparison of the sections of spatial data for each settlement and between the two settlements, the digital platform has the potential to inform decision-making processes in future social housing projects.
