Frequency effects in language learning and processing
A collection of studies on how the analysis of corpus and psycholinguistic data reveal how linguistic knowledge is affected by the frequency of linguistic elements/stimuli. Expand
Designing and Evaluating a Russian Tagset
This paper reports the principles behind designing a tagset to cover Russian morphosyntactic phenomena, modifications of the core tagset, and its evaluation. Expand
2003 Constructing a Language: A Usage-based Theory of Language Acquisition.
In the title of their book Corpora in Cognitive Linguistics, the editors Stefan Th. Gries and Anatol Stefanowitsch conjoin two areas of linguistics whose combination does not immediately spring toExpand
Structuring the Lexicon: A Clustered Model for Near-Synonymy
Structuring the Lexicon presents a cognitively realistic, clustered model for near-synonymy that explicitly addresses the question of how semantic knowledge is distributed along the continuum from grammar to lexicon. Expand
Extracting prototypes from exemplars What can corpus data tell us about concept representation?
We present a methodology that simulates how prototypes can be obtained from exemplars at more than one level of abstraction in a systematic and verifiable way. Expand
Machine Meets Man: Evaluating the Psychological Reality of Corpus-based Probabilistic Models
We compare the performance of a statistical model derived from a corpus with that of native speakers in selecting one of six Russian TRY verbs. Expand
Cluster analysis: Finding structure in linguistic data
Cluster analysis is an exploratory data analysis technique, encompassing a number of different algorithms and methods for sorting objects into groups. Expand
Ways of trying in Russian: clustering behavioral profiles
We show how the internal structure of a group of near synonyms can be revealed by analyzing a corpus-based behavioral profile. Expand
Clusters in the mind?: Converging evidence from near synonymy in Russian
This paper provides experimental evidence to support the existence of mental correlates of lexical clusters of near synonyms that help shape the arrangement of verbs in lexical space. Expand
Towards cognitively plausible data science in language research
Over the past 10 years, Cognitive Linguistics has taken a Quantitative Turn. Yet, concerns have been raised that this preoccupation with quantification and modelling may not bring us any closer toExpand
