Cross-lingual Transfer of Correlations between Parts of Speech and Gaze Features

Maria Barrett, Frank Keller, Anders Søgaard


Abstract
Several recent studies have shown that eye movements during reading provide information about grammatical and syntactic processing, which can assist the induction of NLP models. All these studies have been limited to English, however. This study shows that gaze and part of speech (PoS) correlations largely transfer across English and French. This means that we can replicate previous studies on gaze-based PoS tagging for French, but also that we can use English gaze data to assist the induction of French NLP models.
