Spoken dialogue systems would be more acceptable if they were able to produce backchannel continuers such as mm-hmm in naturalistic locations during the user's utterances. Using the HCRC Map Task Corpus as our data source, we describe models for predicting these locations using only limited processing and features of the user's speech that are commonly(More)
We have examined the projection from the lateral superior olive (LSO) to the inferior colliculus (IC) in the ferret, with particular interest in the laterality of the projection and in the effects of unilateral cochlear removal in infancy. Large or small deposits of the retrograde tracer wheat germ agglutinin-horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP) were made in(More)

This thesis shows how constraint programming can be applied to the processing of Categorial Type Logics (CTL). It presents a novel formalisation of the parsing task for categorial grammars as a tree configuration problem, and demonstrates how a recent proposal for structural constraints on CTL parse trees [11] can be integrated into this framework. The(More)
