Organizing and Improving a Database of French Word Formation Using Formal Concept Analysis
Nyoman Juniarta | Olivier Bonami | Nabil Hathout | Fiammetta Namer | Yannick Toussaint
Proceedings of the Thirteenth Language Resources and Evaluation Conference

We apply Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) to organize and to improve the quality of Démonette2, a French derivational database, through a detection of both missing and spurious derivations in the database. We represent each derivational family as a graph. Given that the subgraph relation exists among derivational families, FCA can group families and represent them in a partially ordered set (poset). This poset is also useful for improving the database. A family is regarded as a possible anomaly (meaning that it may have missing and/or spurious derivations) if its derivational graph is almost, but not completely identical to a large number of other families.

Not Quite There Yet: Combining Analogical Patterns and Encoder-Decoder Networks for Cognitively Plausible Inflection
Basilio Calderone | Nabil Hathout | Olivier Bonami
Proceedings of the 18th SIGMORPHON Workshop on Computational Research in Phonetics, Phonology, and Morphology

The paper presents four models submitted to Part 2 of the SIGMORPHON 2021 Shared Task 0, which aims at replicating human judgements on the inflection of nonce lexemes. Our goal is to explore the usefulness of combining pre-compiled analogical patterns with an encoder-decoder architecture. Two models are designed using such patterns either in the input or the output of the network. Two extra models controlled for the role of raw similarity of nonce inflected forms to existing inflected forms in the same paradigm cell, and the role of the type frequency of analogical patterns. Our strategy is entirely endogenous in the sense that the models appealing solely to the data provided by the SIGMORPHON organisers, without using external resources. Our model 2 ranks second among all submitted systems, suggesting that the inclusion of analogical patterns in the network architecture is useful in mimicking speakers’ predictions.

Demonette2 - Une base de données dérivationnelle du français à grande échelle : premiers résultats (Demonette2 – A large scale derivational database for French: first results)
Fiammetta Namer | Lucie Barque | Olivier Bonami | Pauline Haas | Nabil Hathout | Delphine Tribout
Actes de la Conférence sur le Traitement Automatique des Langues Naturelles (TALN) PFIA 2019. Volume II : Articles courts

Cet article présente la conception et le développement de Demonette2, une base de données dérivationnelle à grande échelle du français, développée dans le cadre du projet ANR Démonext (ANR-17-CE23-0005). L’article décrit les objectifs du projet, la structure de la base et expose les premiers résultats du projet, en mettant l’accent sur un enjeu crucial : la question du codage sémantique des entrées et des relations.
