Automatically Identifying Computationally Relevant Typological Features

  title={Automatically Identifying Computationally Relevant Typological Features},
  author={William D. Lewis and Fei Xia},
In this paper we explore the potential for identifying computationally relevant typological features from a multilingual corpus of language data built from readily available language data collected off the Web. Our work builds on previous structural projection work, where we extend the work of projection to building individual CFGs for approximately 100 languages. We then use the CFGs to discover the values of typological parameters such as word order, the presence or absence of definite and… CONTINUE READING
