This dissertation is concerned with how ambiguity and ambiguity resolution are learned, that is, with the acquisition of the different representations of ambiguous linguistic forms and the knowledge necessary for selecting among them in context.

Ambiguity Tolerance (AT) and Language Learning Studies Learning a new language is akin to exploring an unknown land, as ambiguous situations are prevalent in language learning. As Ambiguity resolution in language learning book () emphasizes, ambiguity is imagined through uncertainty, which is recognized in a number of language learning occasions.

For example, when language File Size: KB.

Chapter 4 Are Vague Words Ambiguous. Steven L. Lytinen, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, The University of Michigan Publisher Summary A difficult problem facing the natural language understanding - Selection from Lexical Ambiguity Resolution [Book].

AMBIGUITY TOLERANCE ambiguous situations are also common in language learning. both linguistic input and cultural knowledge is very likely to constitute one of the ambiguous situations students encounter new lexical and grammatical structures, they often face shortage or even a lack of information, multiple meanings, vagueness, 7.

This chapter on lexical ambiguity examines how words with multiple meanings are learned, stored, and processed. Lexical ambiguity is ubiquitous: over 80% of common English words have more than one dictionary entry, with some words having very many different definitions.

Being able to learn and process ambiguous words is therefore critical for skilled language. This book collects much of the best research currently available on the problem of lexical ambiguity resolution in the processing of human language.

When taken out of context, sentences are usually ambiguous. When actually uttered in a dialogue or written in text, these same sentences often have unique interpretations. H. Rehm “Intolerance of ambiguity [is] the tendency to perceive ambiguous [i.e., novel, complex, or insoluble] situations as sources of threat” (Budner, ).

“In second language learning a great amount of apparently contradictory information is encountered successful language learning necessitates tolerance of such ambiguities” (Brown, ).

Ambiguity (pronounced am-big-YOU-it-tee) is the presence of two or more possible meanings in a single passage. The word comes from a Latin term which means, "wandering about" and the adjective form of the word is ambiguous.

Other terms used for ambiguity are amphibologia, amphibolia, and semantic ambiguity. In addition, ambiguity is sometimes Author: Richard Nordquist. The aim of this study is to analyze the lexical and structural ambiguity in the newpaper titles. The writer conducts a reasearch from Indonesian local newspaper, that is Suara Merdeka.

She takes the data from each section of the newspaper which most likely contains ambiguous meaning and she will analyze it based on the lexical and structural.

A Web search intersecting “learning” and “ambiguity” reveals a certain dominance of the concern with ambiguity in the literature on learning algorithms. As regards human learning, the concept of ambiguity gets mentioned in connection with learning styles (some learners get turned off when confronted with too much ambiguity).

Translation ambiguity occurs when a word in one language can be translated in more than one way into another language. This cross-language phenomenon comes from several sources of within-language ambiguity including lexical ambiguity, polysemy, and near-synonymy. We review the existing research on translation ambiguity, including its consequences for.

ambiguity for various purposes are: verbal humour, more specifically puns, jokes, and riddles, newspaper headlines, and the language of advertising. The second part of the paper, starting with Chapter IV, “Language Ambiguity in Translation”, concentrates more closely on ambiguity seen.Lexical Ambiguity Resolution is a valuable and accessible source book for students and cognitive scientists in AI, psycholinguistics, neuropsychology, or theoretical linguistics.
