GRAMMAR PRACTICE 2 Answer Key - Cambridge Unive...
In practice, the clever exhaustive search techniques employed by SAT solvers fail to scale to the many rules needed to explain large corpora. To scale these solvers to large and complex theories, we take inspiration from a basic feature of how children acquire language and how scientists build theories. Children do not learn a language in one fell swoop, instead progressing through intermediate stages of linguistic development, gradually enriching their mastery of both grammar and lexicon. Similarly, a sophisticated scientific theory might start with a simple conceptual kernel, and then gradually grow to encompass more and more phenomena. Motivated by these observations, we engineered a program synthesis algorithm that starts with a small program, and then repeatedly uses a SAT solver to search for small modifications that allow it to explain more and more data. Concretely, we find a counterexample to our current theory, and then use the solver to exhaustively explore the space of all small modifications to the theory which can accommodate this counterexample. This combines ideas from counter-example guided inductive synthesis26 (which alternates synthesis with a verifier that feeds new counterexamples to the synthesizer) with test-driven synthesis27 (which synthesizes new conditional branches for each such counterexample); it also exposes opportunities for parallelism (Supplementary Methods 3.3). Figure 3 illustrates this incremental, solver-aided synthesis algorithm, while Supplementary Methods 3.3 gives a concrete walk-through of the first few iterations.
No theory is built from scratch: Instead, researchers borrow concepts from existing frameworks, make analogies with other successful theories, and adapt general principles to specific cases. Through analysis and modeling of many different languages, phonologists (and linguists more generally) develop overarching meta-models that restrict and bias the space of allowed grammars. They also develop the phonological common sense that allows them to infer grammars from sparse data, knowing which rule systems are plausible based on their prior knowledge of human language, and which systems are implausible or simply unattested. For example, many languages devoice word-final obstruents, but almost no language voices word-final obstruents (cf. Lezgian42). This cross-theory common-sense is found in other sciences. For example, physicists know which potential energy functions tend to occur in practice (radially symmetric, pairwise, etc.). Thus a key objective for our work is the automatic discovery of a cross-language metamodel capable of imparting phonological common sense.
where P(M) is a prior on fragment grammars over SPE-style rules. In practice, jointly optimizing over the space of Ms and grammars is intractable, and so we instead alternate between finding high-probability grammars under our current M, and then shifting our inductive bias, M, to more closely match the current grammars. We estimate M by applying this procedure to a training subset comprising 30 problems, chosen to exemplify a range of distinct phenomena, and then applied this M to all 70 problems. Critically this unsupervised procedure is not given access to any ground-truth solutions to the training subset.
Learning how to write a good essay with a powerful introduction, clear arguments and well-crafted conclusion is a great way to build a foundation of writing skills. This 8-week course starts with the basics of grammar and sentence construction and quickly advances to thesis development and essay writing with tools for creating outlines and editing your work. Dr. Maggie Sokolik of the College Writing Programs at the University of California, Berkeley guides students through this excellent introductory writing course in which participants can get a great deal of practice writing and interact with other students from around the world. Links to optional online textbooks are provided.
