This work describes an implementation of the "extended alignment" (or "multitiers") approach for cognate reflex prediction, submitted to "Prediction of Cognate Reflexes" shared task. Similarly to List2022d, the technique involves an automatic extension of sequence alignments with multilayered vectors that encode informational tiers on both site-spe...

For over a century, the phoneme has played a central role in linguistic research. In recent years, collections of phoneme inventories, originally designed for cross-linguistic purposes, have increasingly been used in comparative studies involving neighbouring disciplines. Despite the extended application of this type of data, there has been no rese...

Lexical borrowing, the transfer of words from one language to another, is one of the most frequent processes in language evolution. In order to detect borrowings, linguists make use of various strategies, combining evidence from various sources. Despite the increasing popularity of computational approaches in comparative linguistics, automated appr...

This work describes dafsa, a Python library for computing graphs from lists of strings for identifying, visualizing, and inspecting patterns of substrings. The library is designed for usage by linguists in studies on morphology and formal grammars, and is intended for faster, easier, and simpler generation of visualizations. It collects frequency w...

Advances in computer-assisted linguistic research have been greatly influential in reshaping linguistic research. With the increasing availability of interconnected datasets created and curated by researchers, more and more interwoven questions can now be investigated. Such advances, however, are bringing high requirements in terms of rigorousness...
Presentation

Presentation on the on-going project for an analysis of the tradition of the Divine Comedy (i.e., stemmatics) using Bayesian methods, using data derived from Shaw (2011).

ngesh is a Python library for simulating random phylogenetic trees and related data. It is intended for benchmarking phylogenetic methods and for providing dummy trees during the development or debugging of phylogenetic methods. The generation of random phylogenetic trees also goes by the name of “simulation methods for phylogenetic trees” or just...

Contrary to what non-practitioners might expect, the systems of phonetic notation used by linguists are highly idiosyncratic. Not only do various linguistic subfields disagree on the specific symbols they use to denote the speech sounds of languages, but also in large databases of sound inventories considerable variation can be found. Inspired by r...
Article

With increasing amounts of digitally available data from all over the world, manual annotation of cognates in multi-lingual word lists becomes more and more time-consuming in historical linguistics. Using available software packages to pre-process the data prior to manual analysis can drastically speed-up the process of cognate detection. Furthermo...

The Database of Cross-Linguistic Colexifications (CLICS), has estab- lished a computer-assisted framework for the interactive representation of cross- linguistic colexification patterns. In its current form, it has proven to be a useful tool for various kinds of investigation into cross-linguistic semantic associations, ranging from studies on sema...

Este trabalho apresenta, nos limites de análise para sua extensão, uma história da evolução literária do mito de Ulisses de elementos pré-homéricos a experiências contemporâneas, alinhando-se a propostas de historiografia literária interessadas na “recepção”. Motivase por uma hipótese de que, no tocante ao material antigo, o horizonte de expectativ...

This is a translation of my article “O Ulisses dos muitos retornos: por uma história do clássico”, published in Nuntius Antiquus in 2017 (DOI: 10.17851/1983-3636.13.1.227-251), provided for convenience. Any citation should refer to the original article in Brazilian Portuguese.
Article

This work proposes a tentative model for the calculation of dimensionless distances between phonemes; sounds are described with binary distinctive features and distances show linear consistency in terms of such features. The model can be used as a scoring function for local and global pairwise alignment of phoneme sequences, and the distances can b...

Este trabalho analisa a evolução do mito de Ulisses segundo uma com-preensão do antigo, derivada de Novalis, pela qual o clássico não nos é dado-ele nem mesmo existe-mas precisa ser criado por nós: a tese que o orienta considera o clássico não um postulado, mas um projeto, cuja função na cultura ocidental tem sido mediar a alteridade do antigo, mui...

This paper presents a new algorithm, the Modified Moving Contracting Window Pattern Algorithm (CMCWPM), for the calculation of field similarity. It strongly relies on previous work by Yang et al. (2001), correcting previous work in which characters marked as inaccessible for further pattern matching were not treated as boundaries between subfields,...

Thesis
Full-text available
Esta dissertação discute a teorização e a prática do romance histórico oitocentista por Alessandro Manzoni, tanto em sua produção ensaística (em especial "Del romanzo storico", de 1850) quanto naquela literária em "I promessi sposi" [Os noivos] (1842). Para isto, discuto a compreensão contemporânea de “romance histórico” a partir dos entendimentos...
