  • Gatt, Albert; Vella, Alexandra; Caruana, Joe (2003)
    The present document has been compiled in response to the call for contributions issued by the International Standards Organisation (ISO TC37/SC4 N047) towards the adoption of a morphosyntactic annotation framework. The ...
  • Perea, Manuel; Gatt, Albert; Moret-Tatay, Carmen; Fabri, Ray (Springer New York LLC, 2012)
    Recent research using the rapid serial visual presentation (RSVP) paradigm with English sentences that included words with letter transpositions (e.g., jugde) has shown that participants can readily reproduce the correctly ...
  • Perea, Manuel; Gatt, Albert; Moret-Tatay, Carmen; Fabri, Ray (Springer New York LLC, 2012)

  • Gatt, Albert; van Gompel, Roger P. G.; van Deemter, Kees; Krahmer, Emiel (Cognitive Science Society, 2013)
    A recent paper by Frank and Goodman (2012) proposes a Bayesian model of simple referential games. One of the claims embodied in the model is that choosing which word or property to use to refer to an object depends ...
  • van Deemter, Kees; Gatt, Albert; van der Sluis, Ielka; Power, Richard (Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, Inc., 2012)
    This response discusses the experiment reported in Krahmer et al.’s Letter to the Editor of Cognitive Science. We observe that their results do not tell us whether the Incremental Algorithm is better or worse than its ...
  • Gatt, Albert; Goudbeek, Martijn; Krahmer, Emiel (Cognitive Science Society, 2011)
    Referring expressions (such as the red chair facing right) often show evidence of preferences (Pechmann, 1989; Belke & Meyer, 2002), with some attributes (e.g. colour) being more frequent and more often included when ...
  • Belz, Anja; Gatt, Albert (European Association for Machine Translation, 2007)
    The Attribute Selection for Generating Referring Expressions (ASGRE) Challenge was the first shared-task evaluation challenge in the field of Natural Language Generation. Six teams submitted a total of 22 systems. All ...
  • Gatt, Albert; Belz, Anja (Association for Computational Linguistics., 2008)
    Referring expression generation has recently been the subject of the first Shared Task Challenge in NLG. In this paper, we analyse the systems that participated in the Challenge in terms of their algorithmic properties, ...
  • Hunter, James; Freer, Yvonne; Gatt, Albert; Reiter, Ehud; Sripada, Somayajulu; Sykes, Cindy (Elsevier BV, 2012)
    automatically generate helpful natural language nursing shift summaries solely from an electronic patient record system, in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Methods: A system was developed which automatically ...
  • Portet, Francois; Reiter, Ehud; Gatt, Albert; Hunter, Jim; Sripada, Somayajulu; Freer, Yvonne; Sykes, Cindy (Elsevier BV, 2009)
    Effective presentation of data for decision support is a major issue when large volumes of data are generated as happens in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Although the most common approach is to present the data graphically, ...
  • van Deemter, Kees; Gatt, Albert (Cognitive Science Society, 2009)
    This paper discusses ways in which the similarity between the contents of two referring expressions can be measured. Simi- larity metrics of this kind are essential when expressions gen- erated by an algoritm are ...
  • Gatt, Albert; Fabri, Ray (Language Science Press, 2017)
    Among the derivational processes that have been adopted into Maltese based on the Romance model, there are processes to derive nouns from verbs which are relatively recent developments. Examples include the use of the ...
  • Hunter, James; Freer, Yvonne; Gatt, Albert; Reiter, Ehud; Sripada, Somayajulu; Sykes, Cindy; Westwater, Dave (Oxford University Press, 2011)
    Objective: To determine if a computer system can automatically generate a useful natural language nursing shift summary solely from an electronic patient record system, in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Design: ...
  • van Deemter, Kees; van der Sluis, Ielka; Gatt, Albert (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2006)
    This paper discusses the construction of a corpus for the evaluation of algorithms that generate referring expressions. It is argued that such an evaluation task requires a semantically transparent corpus, and controlled ...
  • Gatt, Albert; van Deemter, Kees (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2006)
    One of the challenges in the automatic generation of referring expressions is to identify a set of domain entities coherently, that is, from the same conceptual perspective. We describe and evaluate an algorithm that ...
  • Gatt, Albert (UCNLG, 2007)
    In this paper, we discuss the evaluation mea- sures proposed in a number of recent papers as- sociated with the TUNA project1, and which have become an important component of the First NLG Shared Task and Evaluation Cam- ...
  • Gatt, Albert; van der Sluis, Ielka; van Deemter, Kees (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2007)
    Corpus-based evaluation of NLP systems has become a dominant methodology. Typically, some metric is invoked to evaluate the results produced by a system against a ‘gold standard’ represented in the corpus. Despite ...
  • Borg, Claudia; Gatt, Albert (European Language Resources Association, 2014)
    The automatic discovery and clustering of morphologically related words is an important problem with several practical applications. This paper describes the evaluation of word clusters carried out through crowd-sourcing ...
  • Galea, Luke; Hermes, Anne; Gatt, Albert; Grice, Martine (International Phonetic Association, 2015)
    In this study we investigated word-initial geminates in Maltese, focusing on sub-segmental acoustic durations: constriction duration and, where appropriate, VOT; and the duration of adjacent segments: the tonic vowel ...
  • Gatt, Albert; Pace, Gordon J.; Rosner, Mike (University of Malta, 2014-03)
    Maltese needs to be saved from digital extinction. Dr Albert Gatt, Prof. Gordon Pace, and Mike Rosner write about their work making digital tools for Maltese, interpretting legalese, and making a Maltese-speaking ...
