Note: This schedule is subject to change.
Four Germanic languages have an adverb of degree, with a
meaninghigh/highest, sharing an nearly exclusive preference for
polysyllabic,polymorphemic words. These adverbs are not in use in the
common ancestor language, but appear to have spread by contact in the
early modern period.
Otherwise similar adverbs, such as German äusserst, Dutch uiterst, do
not share this preference. I discuss the theoretical impact of these
observations, and what they tell us about language contact.
"PAT: Pictures and Text"
Ielka van der Sluis
In this talk I will present an overview of the work in the PAT project. The PAT project addresses the use, effects and optimisation of documents that contain pictures and text (PAT). PAT innovatively combines approaches from Information Design Research and Computational Linguistics employing corpus collection and analysis, (automatic) annotation, experimentation, and natural language generation. The PAT project will deliver theoretical results in terms of empirically validated models for effective multimodal documents. Results of practical value include new annotated multimodal corpora, implemented taggers to automatically annotate potentially effective properties of multimodal documents, algorithms to automatically evaluate and to automatically generate effective text-picture combinations and authoring guidelines to produce good quality multimodal documents.
