Discourse Relation Configurations in Turkish and an Annotation Environment

In this paper, we describe an annotation environment developed for the marking of discourse structures in Turkish, and the kinds of discourse relation configurations that led to its design.


Discourse Meaning: The View from Turkish
Zeyrek Bozşahin, Deniz; Özge, Umut (Mouton de Gruyter, 2020-05-01)
The volume aims to bring together original, unpublished papers on discourse structure and meaning from different frameworks or theoretical perspectives to address research questions revolving around issues instigated by Turkish. Another goal is to offer methodologically different solutions for the research gaps identified in individual chapters. The contributions are based on empirical generalizations and make use of, for example, computerized corpora as the data, examples compiled from naturally occurring ...
Discourse functions of students' and teachers' code-switching in EFL classrooms : a case study in a Turkish university
Ataş, Ufuk; Sağın Şimşek, Sultan Çiğdem; Department of English Language Teaching (2012)
This study aims to analyze the discourse functions of code-switching used by the students and the teachers in EFL classrooms in a Turkish university. Another aim of this study is to find out the forms of code-switching used by the teachers and students and compare the amount and functions of these code-switching usages in different levels. In the light of these aims, two advanced classes, two pre-intermediate classes and one intermediate class were observed and video recorded. The data obtained from these r...
Subject realization in bilinguals: A comparative study of German-Turkish and Russian-Turkish bilingual children
Sağın Şimşek, Sultan Çiğdem (2017-12-01)
The aim of this study is to examine the vulnerability of subject realization in Turkish as an interface structure at the syntax-pragmatics interface. The study compares subject realization of four Turkish monolingual, three GermanTurkish bilingual and two Russian-Turkish bilingual children. The language combinations investigated in the study were determined by the fact that Russian is a partially null-subject language, while German is a non-null-subject one and Turkish is a null-subject language. Thus, focu...
Discourse Information Structure : a cognitive approach to language based on dynamic network representation
Öter, Fırat; Temürcü, Ceyhan; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2015)
The historical course of linguistics studies with an emphasis on meaning points out the requirement of a representational framework that is capable of forming a structure building bridge between the linguistic (i.e. symbolic) and cognitive (i.e. conceptual) levels. The present thesis aims to lay down some conditions for a comprehensive semantic theory, which is capable of representing all relevant levels of cognitive information involved in semantic processing. This attempt will give rise to a new, suggesti...
Clustering based personality prediction on turkish tweets
Tutaysalgir, Esen; Karagöz, Pınar; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı (2019-08-30)
In this paper, we present a framework for predicting the personality traits by analyzing tweets written in Turkish. The prediction model is constructed with a clustering based approach. Since the model is based on linguistic features, it is language specific. The prediction model uses features applicable to Turkish language and related to writing style of Turkish Twitter users. Our approach uses anonymous BIGS questionnaire scores of volunteer participants as the ground truth in order to generate personalit...
