Automatic word stress annotation of Russian unrestricted text

  title={Automatic word stress annotation of Russian unrestricted text},
  author={Robert Joshua Reynolds and Francis M. Tyers},
We evaluate the effectiveness of finitestate tools we developed for automatically annotating word stress in Russian unrestricted text. [...] Key Result These results highlight the need for morphosyntactic disambiguation in the word stress placement task for Russian, and set a standard for future research on this task.Expand
Automated Word Stress Detection in Russian
This study addresses the problem of automated word stress detection in Russian using character level models and no part-speech-taggers, and shows that using the data from an annotated corpus is much more efficient than using only a dictionary. Expand
A preliminary constraint grammar for Russian
This paper presents preliminary work on a constraint grammar based disambiguator for Russian that is tuned to be high recall (over 0.99) at the expense of low precision. Expand
Char-RNN for Word Stress Detection in East Slavic Languages
It is shown that it is possible to train a model in a cross-lingual setting and that using additional languages improves the quality of the results. Expand


Phonological default in the lexical stress system of Russian: Evidence from noun declension
Russian is known to be an unpredictable stress language, where stress is not fixed to a particular location within a certain phonological domain, but rather marked lexically for a number ofExpand
Morphological Effects on Default Stress in Novel Russian Words
This article presents the results of a nonce-probe experiment conducted with 13 native speakers of Russian and examines the implications of these results for the linguistic analysis of RussianExpand
Word stress assignment in a text-to-speech synthesis system for British English
A technique for the assignment of word stress to isolated British English words is described and is found to be more satisfactory on both the theoretical and the practical levels. Expand
Automatic methods for lexical stress assignment and syllabification
Improvements in automatic lexical stress assignment and syllabification can increase the quality of text-to-speech synthesis as well as decrease the memory requirements for dictionaries. SeveralExpand
Improving letter-to-pronunciation accuracy with automatic morphologically-based stress prediction
Improvements to both stress accuracy and phone accuracy are obtained in American English, British English, and German by adding a new component that uses morphological information to predict which letter of a word might receive primary stress to the decision tree stressed-letter-topronunciation component.

A Fast Morphological Algorithm with Unknown Word Guessing Induced by a Dictionary for a Web Search Engine
A simple yet practical algorithm of morphological analysis and synthesis that uses a limited dictionary to obtain morphology of a wide lexical coverage is described, implemented for Russian, Polish and English. Expand

This paper will discuss how to determine word stress from spelling, andressing Italian names with the Latin pattern yields amusing results as will be demonstrated. Expand
A Ranking Approach to Stress Prediction for Letter-to-Phoneme Conversion
This paper represents words as sequences of substrings, and uses the substrings as features in a Support Vector Machine (SVM) ranker, which is trained to rank possible stress patterns, and advances the current state-of-the-art. Expand
A General Computational Model for Word-Form Recognition and Production
A language independent model for recognition and production of word forms is presented, based on a new way of describing morphological alternations that is capable of both analyzing and synthesizing word-forms. Expand
Russian Stress Prediction using Maximum Entropy Ranking
A model of stress prediction in Russian using a combination of local contextual features and linguisticallymotivated features associated with the word’s stem and sux performs best in identifying both primary and secondary stress. Expand
