  • About Lafferty: Raphael Aloysius Lafferty (November 7, 1914 - March 18, 2002) was an American science fiction and fantasy writer known for his original use of language, metaphor, and narrative structure, as well as for his etymological wit. He also wrote a set of four autobiographical novels, In a Green Tree; a history book, The Fall of Rome; and a number of novels that could be more or less loosely called historical fiction. Lafferty was born on 7 November 1914 in Neola, Iowa to Hugh David Lafferty (a broker dealing in oil leases and royalties) and Julia Mary Burke, a...

  • We have developed a novel, publicly available annotation tool for the semantic encoding of texts, especially those in the narrative domain. Users can create formal propositions to represent spans of text, as well as temporal relations and other aspects of narrative. A built-in naturallanguage generation component regenerates text from the formal structures, which eases the annotation process. We have run collection experiments with the tool and shown that non-experts can easily create semantic encodings of short fables. ...

  • We propose a new approach to characterizing the timeline of a text: temporal dependency structures, where all the events of a narrative are linked via partial ordering relations like BE FORE , AFTER , OVERLAP and IDENTITY . We annotate a corpus of children’s stories with temporal dependency trees, achieving agreement (Krippendorff’s Alpha) of 0.856 on the event words, 0.822 on the links between events, and of 0.700 on the ordering relation labels.

  • We describe an unsupervised system for learning narrative schemas, coherent sequences or sets of events (arrested(POLICE , SUSPECT), convicted( JUDGE , SUSPECT )) whose arguments are filled with participant semantic roles defined over words (J UDGE = {judge, jury, court}, P OLICE = {police, agent, authorities}). Unlike most previous work in event structure or semantic role learning, our system does not use supervised techniques, hand-built knowledge, or predefined classes of events or roles.

  • This p a p e r proposes a new framework for discourse analysis, in the spirit of Grosz and Sidner (1986), Webber (1987a,b) but differentiated with respect to the type or genre of discourse. It is argued t h a t different genres call for different representations and processing strategies; particularly i m p o r t a n t is the distinction between subjective, pefformative discourse and objective discourse, of which narrative is a primary example. This p a p e r concentrates on narratives and introduces the notions of temporal focus (proposed also in Webber (1987b)) and...

  • In this account of 60 years of Bible translation, Eugene Nida sets out his journey with a personal touch. On the way, he reveals the importance of a solid knowledge of Greek and Hebrew as well as of the historical settings in which the Bible was created, in order to render effective translations. Through his story we get to know Nida's views on translations through the ages, in different cultures and narrative traditions, right through to the 21st Century. This book is in the first place a study in anthropological linguistics that tells the rich history of Bible translation, the...

  • As I was completing the manuscript for the first edition of A History of Modern Computing, I found myself anxiously looking over my shoulder, worrying that some new development in computing would render what I had just written obsolete. My concern was well grounded: as I was writing the final chapter, at least one event occurred that threatened to upset the narrative structure I had erected.

  • One of the hardest problems for knowledge extraction from machine readable textual sources is distinguishing entities and events that are part of the main story from those that are part of the narrative structure, hnportantly, however, reported sl)eech in newspaper articles explicitly links these two levels. In this paper, we illustrate what the lexical semantics of reporting verbs must incorporate in order to contribute to the reconstruction of story and context.

  • Basquiat allows him to retell some of the C.V.J story in colour, with movement, and in pictorial terms impossible to achieve in print. The book provides a structural plan for the film which is then fleshed out with the detail which we see on the screen. We perceive an accumulation of vignettes which explain why the film has a formal physicality, the presence of an object which a simple narrative would not have. The film, like Schnabel called painting, is a bouquet of mistakes.

  • Although there is an extensive body of research concerned with anaphora resolution (e.g. (Fox, 1987; Grosz et al., 1995)), event anaphora has been widely neglected. This paper describes the results of an empirical study regarding event reference. The experiment investigated event anaphora in narrative discourse via a sentence completion task. The results of the experiment suggest that the discourse structure established by an explanation or elaboration relation has an influence on whether the last mentioned event, previously mentioned events or a complex event is preferably referred to.

  • Certain spans of utterances in a discourse, referred to here as segments, are widely assumedto form coherent units. Further, the segmental structure of discourse has been claimed to constrain and be constrained by many phenomena. However, there is weak consensus on the nature of segments and the criteria for recognizing or generating them. We present quantitative results of a two part study using a corpus of spontaneous, narrative monologues. The first part evaluates the statistical reliability of human segmentation of our corpus, where speaker intention is the segmentation criterion. ...

  • Probabilistic accounts of language processing can be psychologically tested by comparing word-reading times (RT) to the conditional word probabilities estimated by language models. Using surprisal as a linking function, a significant correlation between unlexicalized surprisal and RT has been reported (e.g., Demberg and Keller, 2008), but success using lexicalized models has been limited. In this study, phrase structure grammars and recurrent neural networks estimated both lexicalized and unlexicalized surprisal for words of independent sentences from narrative sources. ...

  • We present a web tool that allows users to explore news stories concerning the 2012 US Presidential Elections via an interactive interface. The tool is based on concepts of “narrative analysis”, where the key actors of a narration are identified, along with their relations, in what are sometimes called “semantic triplets” (one example of a triplet of this kind is “Romney Criticised Obama”).
