Learning Pronoun Case from Distributional Cues: Flexible Frames for Case Acquisition
Xiaomeng Ma | Martin Chodorow | Virginia Valian
Proceedings of the Workshop on Cognitive Modeling and Computational Linguistics

Case is an abstract grammatical feature that indicates argument relationship in a sentence. In English, cases are expressed on pronouns, as nominative case (e.g. I, he), accusative case (e.g. me, him) and genitive case (e.g. my, his). Children correctly use cased pronouns at a very young age. How do they acquire abstract case in the first place, when different cases are not associated with different meanings? This paper proposes that the distributional patterns in parents’ input could be used to distinguish grammatical cases in English.

Towards Evaluating Narrative Quality In Student Writing
Swapna Somasundaran | Michael Flor | Martin Chodorow | Hillary Molloy | Binod Gyawali | Laura McCulla
Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics, Volume 6

This work lays the foundation for automated assessments of narrative quality in student writing. We first manually score essays for narrative-relevant traits and sub-traits, and measure inter-annotator agreement. We then explore linguistic features that are indicative of good narrative writing and use them to build an automated scoring system. Experiments show that our features are more effective in scoring specific aspects of narrative quality than a state-of-the-art feature set.
