Mining Error Templates for Grammatical Error Correction

  title={Mining Error Templates for Grammatical Error Correction},
  author={Yueli Zhang and Haochen Jiang and Zuyi Bao and Bo Zhang and Chen Li and Zhenghua Li},
Some grammatical error correction (GEC) systems incorporate hand-crafted rules and achieve positive results. However, manually defining rules is time-consuming and labori-ous. In view of this, we propose a method to mine error templates for GEC automatically. An error template is a regular expression aim-ing at identifying text errors. We use the web crawler to acquire such error templates from the Internet. For each template, we further select the corresponding corrective action by using the…

Grammatical error correction using neural machine translation

This paper presents the first study using neural machine translation (NMT) for grammatical error correction (GEC). We propose a twostep approach to handle the rare word problem in NMT, which has been

A Crash Course in Automatic Grammatical Error Correction

The main goal of this tutorial is not only to bring attendees up to speed with GEC in general, but also examine the development of neural-based GEC systems.

Neural Network Translation Models for Grammatical Error Correction

This paper addresses limitation of discrete word representation, linear mapping, and lack of global context in phrase-based statistical machine translation by using two different yet complementary neural network models, namely a neural network global lexicon model and a Neural network joint model.

Approaching Neural Grammatical Error Correction as a Low-Resource Machine Translation Task

The combined effects of adding source-side noise, domain-adaptation techniques, a GEC-specific training-objective, transfer learning with monolingual data, and ensembling of independently trained GEC models and language models result in better than state-of-the-art neural G EC models that outperform previously best neural GEC systems.

The system is simple, practically does not use additional linguistic resources and was constructed in two months, but it does not obtain better scores as compared to more sophisticated systems that use many resources, the Internet and machine learning methods.

MuCGEC: a Multi-Reference Multi-Source Evaluation Dataset for Chinese Grammatical Error Correction

This paper presents MuCGEC, a multi-reference multi-source evaluation dataset for Chinese Grammatical Error Correction (CGEC), consisting of 7,063 sentences collected from three Chinese-as-a-Second-Language (CSL) learner sources, and conducts experiments with two mainstream CGEC models, both enhanced with large pretrained language models.

Chinese Grammatical Error Correction Using Statistical and Neural Models
