MWE-Finder: A Demonstration

Proceedings of the 2024 Joint International Conference on Computational Linguistics, Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC-COLING 2024)

This paper introduces and demonstrates MWE Finder, an application to search for flexible multiword expressions (MWEs) in Dutch text corpora, starting from an example. If the example is in canonical form, the application automatically generates three queries to search for sentences that contain an occurrence of the MWE and thus enables efficient analysis of its properties. Searching is done in treebanks, so the grammatical structure of the sentences is taken into account.

Breaking Sentiment Analysis of Movie Reviews
Ieva Staliūnaitė | Ben Bonfil
Proceedings of the First Workshop on Building Linguistically Generalizable NLP Systems

The current paper covers several strategies we used to ‘break’ predictions of sentiment analysis systems participating in the BLGNLP2017 workshop. Specifically, we identify difficulties of participating systems in understanding modals, subjective judgments, world-knowledge based references and certain differences in syntax and perspective.
