Collaborative Research Centre 1287 - Limits of Variability in Language: Cognitive, Computational, and Grammatical Aspects

T01

Transforming text across media

PI(s): Prof. Dr. Manfred Stede & Prof. Dr. Tatjana Scheffler

In collaboration with two language-technology companies, the project addresses the task of tailoring text to the conventions and requirements of different target media, in particular written blogs and microblogs (Twitter), and spoken podcasts. The focus is on the discourse-level phenomena of coreference, particle use, and coherence relations. Variation on these dimensions will be correlated with human processing ease in reading/listening experiments. The findings will then be translated into models and algorithms for identifying text passages that should be adapted, and experiments with automatically performing such adaptations will be carried out.
