Experimental Data and Deep Learning: Subjecthood Tests in Korean

Nowadays, as the techniques in machine learning and deep learning develop, there have been some trials which apply those techniques in the study of language and natural language processing. This paper shows how deep-learning technique can be applied to experimental data so that the constructed language model can predict some interesting properties of natural languages.

          This paper takes the data sets in six subjecthood tests in Korean (Kim et al., 2015; Lee et al., 2015; and Kim et al., 2017) and makes a language model with a deep neural network (DNN). After converting the z-scores into the scores between 0 and 100, the scores are classified into 10 groups (0-10, 11-20, ..., 91-100). Then, a DNN model is constructed where the converted 10 groups of scores are the output category and the other linguistic features become input values. The input values include types of diagnostic tests, Case markers, SSC vs. MSC, presence/absence of diagnostics, animacy of the subjects, and so on. From the constructed model, predicted scores will be calculated for each sentence when such and such linguistic environments are satisfied. The goal of this paper is to demonstrate how to use DNNs to uncover some interesting properties of natural languages using experimental data and deep learning.
