Investigations into categorial grammar: Symmetric pregroup grammar and displacement calculus

Published in BSc Thesis, Utrecht University, 2011

In this thesis we investigate a symmetric extension of pregroup grammars, and the generative capacity of the Displacement Calculus. Read more

Categorical Foundations for Extended Compositional Distributional Models of Meaning

Published in MSc Thesis, 2014

In the thesis we investigate a categorical compositional distributional model for the Lambek-Grishin Calculus, a two-sided extension of the Lambek Calculus. We also look at graphical languages for reasoning with diagrams for this extended model. Read more

Classical Copying versus Quantum Entanglement in Natural Language: The Case of VP-ellipsis

Published in Proceedings of the 2018 workshop on Compositional Approaches in Physics, NLP and Social Sciences, 2018

We develop and compare two compositional distributional models for embedding VP-elliptical phrases. Read more

A Proof-Theoretic Approach to Scope Ambiguity in Compositional Vector Space Models

Published in Journal of Language Modelling, 2019

Journal of Language Modelling. We combine a proof-theoretic model of scope ambiguities with a lexical treatment of quantifiers in a compositional distributional model. Read more

A Type-Driven Vector Semantics for Ellipsis with Anaphora using Lambek Calculus with Limited Contraction

Published in LACompLing 2017, 2019

We develop a vector space semantics for verb phrase ellipsis with anaphora using type-driven compositional distributional semantics based on the Lambek calculus with limited contraction (LCC) of J├Ąger (2006). Read more
