The question this dissertation attempts to answer is what kind of semantic information does the word-space model acquire and represent the answer is derived through an identification and discussion of the three main theoretical cornerstones of the word-space model: the geometric metaphor of meaning, the distributional. Current dissertation the semantic components of memory are connected with memory prototypes as important factors of recognition and distinction the topics of the current dissertation can be defined by the following: a) the changing together, leaving space for the play of the connecting points'2 this definition offers. Reusable, semantic, and context-aware micro- architecture approach to managing interoperability and dynamics in smart spaces susanna pantsar- syväniemi thesis for the degree of doctor of science in technology, to be presented with due permission for public examination and criticism in op-sali. This dissertation presents three solutions which incorporate semantics onto visual data in order to address these problems first, on the problem of constructing topological experiments include both small office spaces, and a large open urban rail station with semantically ambiguous places this approach showcases a. Diese dissertation ist auf dem server der deutschen geodätischen kommission unter sowie auf dem dokumentenserver der sharing alternative scientific views on indoor space modelling and for open and constructive discussions i want to thank all the members of the semantic space models. Attribute selection throughout this thesis the approach to attribute selection proposed in this thesis is framed in structured distributional models we model adjective and noun meanings as distinct semantic vectors in the same semantic space spanned by attributes as dimensions of meaning based on these word. We investigate underlying geometries, formulated in terms of grassmannians, projective spaces, and flag varieties we formulate the relation between vector space models and semantic spaces based on semic axes in terms of projectability of subvarieties in grassmannians and projective spaces.
A dissertation submitted to the department of linguistics and the committee on graduate studies of stanford university in partial 115 the role of representations in semantic theory proximity in this vector space tends to reflect semantic similarity, and, at least within. In this thesis, i hy- pothesize that the quality of distributional models can be improved by carefully incorporating linguistic knowledge into the definition of linguistic environment 3 near-synonym lexical choice in latent semantic space 25 342 supervised learning on the latent semantic space features 30. A series of recent experiments has at- tempted to determine the generality of the affective semantic space osgood and asso- ciates (1957) have reported the three domi- nant factors of meaning, which they regard as the primary dimensions that appear to organize this space these most salient fac- tors of meaning, labeled. My recent work has focused on story and script understanding, discourse-level semantic role labelling, and modelling lexical relations using discourse cues i received a 07/2017, congratulations to ashutosh modi, on whose committee i served, for defending his phd thesis representing framenet in semantic spaces.
Ubiquitous system software semantic space: an infrastructure for smart spaces current pervasive computing research tries to merge the material and digi- tal worlds by semantic space is a pervasive computing infrastructure that exploits cations, doctoral dissertation, georgia inst technology, 2000 8. Notwithstanding, the present dissertation focuses on a more basic aspect of the ' grammar of space': its object of inquiry is the communication of what is known in the literature as itinerary descriptions, wayfinding instructions, or route directions, concerning their cognitive and semantic- pragmatic. This dissertation investigates the semantics of existential sentences (existentials) such as (1) (1) there's whiskey in the jar most semantic literature on existentials has focused on the so-called definiteness effect (de), namely the this process would require much more space than i have here i thank her for our won.
This dissertation/thesis is brought to you for free and open access by [email protected] it has been semantic neighborhood density's effects on the processing of ambiguous words were examined in three lexical large and variable structure, such a semantic space may share characteristics across individuals. This thesis aims to address this both theoretically and empirically within the theoretical focus, the definitions of word space and lsa as presented in the literature are studied a formalisation of these two semantic models is presented and their theoretical properties and relationships are discussed.

This thesis entitled: summary street: an intelligent tutoring system for improving student writing through the use of latent semantic analysis career while space (and poor memory) does not permit me to acknowledge semantic analysis—he brought lsa to the university of colorado, and was.
We propose an approach to corpus-based semantics, inspired by cognitive science, in which different semantic tasks are tack- led using the same underlying reposi- tory of distributional information, col- lected once and for all from the source corpus task-specific semantic spaces are then built on demand from the. In connection with work on the theory and measurement of meaning, a reasonably stable and reproducible set of dimensions within which meaningful judgments are made has been developed, and efforts have been devoted to testing the generality of this semantic system major sections are: learning theory and. Bridging the gap: intensifiers between semantic and social meaning a dissertation submitted to the faculty of the division of the humanities in candidacy for the degree of doctor of philosophy department of linguistics by andrea beltrama chicago. Sense information as stored in wordnet to our knowledge, this is the only work trying to bridge frame membership to referential properties of lexical senses pitel (2006) presents a preliminary study on the applicability of semantic spaces and space geometrical transformations (namely, latent semantic analysis) to expand.

Spaces, this is still important in order to achieve successful end-user adoption the main result of this dissertation is a semantic interoperability framework, which consists of following individual contributions: 1) a semantic-level interoperability architecture for smart spaces, 2) a knowledge sharing protocol.
