Computational Linguistics

Section A

1) In each group of words given below, show which words (if any) share a common suffix.


2) Look at the following sentence

The President addressed the nation on the eve of the Independence Day.
Any sentence can be split into smaller units (let us call them blocks). For example the above sentence can be split into following major blocks.
[The President] [addressed] [the nation] [on the eve] [of the Independence Day]

Split the following sentences in a similar way :
  • The boy wearing the blue cap is my brother.
  • I met a student of philosophy in the train.
  • Lucknow is as hot as Kanpur.
  • Meena was reading a book and Rekha was watching Television.
  • As it was raining the children played inside the house.

3) Give the missing number in the following sequences :

      a. 1, 4, 9, 16, ---, 36         b. 2, 4, 7, 12, 21, ---

      c. 6, 9, 14,---, 30, 41         d. 6, 24, ---, 96, 150, 216

Section B
(Note : Only those students who have a background in linguistics should attempt this section)

1) Represent the structure of the following sentences in the form of labelled tree diagrams and state the phrases structure rules for the same.
  1. That girl appeared to be extremely intelligent to the selection committee.
  2. The team from Bombay lost with dignity.
2) Define the concepts below, giving examples in English or in your mother tongue for each of them.

      a. Ellipsis           b. Ambiguity

      c. Derivation      d. Meronymy

3) Read the sentences below and explain why 1(b) is possible and 1(c) is not? Also draw the necessary tree diagrams.
  1. (a) John is easy to please
    (b) It is easy to please John

  2. (a) John is eager to please
    (b) *It is eager to please John

4) Given below is some data from Turkish. Study the data carefully and explain the morphophonemic rules.

4kedi cat4a.kedilercats

Section C
(Note : Students who have background other than in linguistics should attempt this section)

1) Go through the data in the table below and identify the swahili words for the following English equivalents
house, his, your, dog, -s (plural marker)

Data from Swahili

nokalimy house
nokalimesmy houses
mokaliyour house
ikalihis house
mopeloyour dog
mopelomesyour dogs

2) 'Pairs' of sentences are given below. Both the sentences in each pair have a 'common word' which means differently in the different sentences. Analyse which information in each of the sentences disambiguates them ?
  1. (i) Cleaning acids is dangerous.
    (ii) Cleaning acids are dangerous.

  2. (i) All the hunters ate the game.
    (ii) All the hunters played the game.

  3. (i) He was broke
    (ii) He broke his arm.
3) A new word can be formed using prefixes like un-, dis-, in- etc and suffixes like -Â-men,-,--y Â-s, ~ed, -ation etc. Look at the given words and state the steps by which the words have been formed. The first one is worked out for you.
