  • We address the problem of learning the mapping between words and their possible pronunciations in terms of sub-word units. Most previous approaches have involved generative modeling of the distribution of pronunciations, usually trained to maximize likelihood.

  • The original function of seatbelts was to re- strain only adult-size occupants, and some belt- assembly design parameters are in conflict with those that would best secure CRs. These param- eters include belt anchor location, buckle size, and type of retractor and latchplate. These and other issues regarding child restraint compatibility with vehicle belts and seats are addressed in an SAE Recommended Practice (SAE J1819, 1994). 105 Unfortunately, however, not all products comply with this voluntary standard, nor have all prob- lems been solved.

  • The use of phrases in retrieval models has been proven to be helpful in the literature, but no particular research addresses the problem of discriminating phrases that are likely to degrade the retrieval performance from the ones that do not. In this paper, we present a retrieval framework that utilizes both words and phrases flexibly, followed by a general learning-to-rank method for learning the potential contribution of a phrase in retrieval.

  • Research on the discovery of terms from corpora has focused on word sequences whose recurrent occurrence in a corpus is indicative of their terminological status, and has not addressed the issue of discovering terms when data is sparse. This becomes apparent in the case of noun compounding, which is extremely productive: more than half of the candidate compounds extracted from a corpus are attested only once. We show how evidence about established (i.e.
