Detecting Complements and Adjuncts:  Detecting Complements and Adjuncts Rajat Kumar Mohanty Center for Indian Language Technology IIT Bombay Outline:  Outline X-bar Theory Revisited Complement and Adjuncts within an NP Detecting Complements and Adjuncts Structural Ambiguity Phrase Structure Rules for Noun Phrases Reordering of Adjuncts Co-ordination Extraposition Preposing Co-occurrence Restrictions Generalization Exercises X-bar Theory:  X-bar Theory It tells us how words are combined to make phrases and sentences. It captures the commonality between different types of phrases, which PS-rules cannot. X-bar Projection:  X-bar Projection XP X ` X ZP YP (Maximal projection) (Intermediate projection) (Minimal projection) X-bar Projection:  X-bar Projection XP X ` X ZP YP (X-phrase) (Head) (Complement) (Specifier) X-bar Projection:  X-bar Projection XP X ` X ZP YP (Complement) (Specifier) X ` ZP (Head) (Adjunct) X-bar Projection:  X-bar Projection NP N ` PPcomplement NPspecifier John’s Nhead solution to the problem X-bar Projection:  X-bar Projection NP N ` of the cricket match the N ` discussion in the cabinet meeting Detspecifier Nhead PPcomplement PPadjunct Complement and Adjuncts within an NP:  Complement and Adjuncts within an NP NP N ` Nhead PPadjunct Detspecifier of NLP a N ` PPcomplement student with long hair Structural Ambiguity in an NP:  Structural Ambiguity in an NP A student [of high moral principles] Is there any ambiguity in this NP ? a person who studies high moral principles a student who has high moral principles This ambiguity can be characterized in structural terms a person who studies high moral principles:  a person who studies high moral principles NP N ` of high moral principles a student Detspecifier Nhead PPcomplement a student who has high moral principles:  a student who has high moral principles NP N ` of moral principles a N ` student Detspecifier Nhead PPadjunct Examples:  Examples Arguments [with John] are often pointless. (???) Arguments [with few premises] are often pointless. (???) Arguments [with John] [with few premises] are often pointless. *Arguments [with few premises] [with John] are often pointless. Phrase Structure Rules for Noun Phrases:  Phrase Structure Rules for Noun Phrases The complement must precede an adjunct. Rules NP N’ (PP) adjunct rule N’ N (PP) complement rule Examples a student [of Physics] [with long hair] * a student [with long hair] [of Physics] Phrase Structure Rules for Noun Phrases:  Phrase Structure Rules for Noun Phrases Adjunct rules are recursive. A complement rule is not recursive, i.e., it can apply only once. Examples a student [with long hair] [with short arms] * a student [of Physics] [of Chemistry] Reordering of Adjuncts:  Reordering of Adjuncts Unlike complements which have to precede adjuncts, adjuncts can be freely reordered with respect to each other. a student [with long hair] [with short arms] a student [with short arms] [with long hair] Co-ordination:  Co-ordination Complements can be co-ordinated with other complements. a student [of linguistics] and [of Computer Science] Adjuncts can be co-ordinated with other adjuncts. a student [with short arms] and [with long hair] But adjunct PPs and complements PPs cannot be co-ordinated. * a student [of Physics] and [with short arms] * a student [with short arms] and [of Physics] Extraposition:  Extraposition Adjuncts are less tightly bound to the head noun than complements. It is possible to extrapose adjuncts PPs but not possible to extrapose complement PPs. Examples A student [with long hair] came to see me yesterday. ? A student came to see me yesterday [with long hair]. * A student came to see me yesterday [of Physics]. Preposing:  Preposing Complements and Adjuncts behave differently with respect to preposing. Examples [What branch of linguistics] is John a student of? * [What kind of hair] is John a student with? Note that Complements and Adjuncts go in opposite directions with respect to Extraposition and Preposing. Heads are more closely related to their complements than to their adjuncts. Co-occurrence Restrictions:  Co-occurrence Restrictions Heads place significant restrictions (i.e. , subcategorisation) on what can appear as their complement. a student of NLP * a boy of NLP * a girl of NLP * a teenager of NLP No similar restrictions are imposed on adjuncts. a student with long hair a boy with long hair a girl with long hair a teenager with long hair Generalization:  Generalization Heads are more closely related to their complements than to their adjuncts. Subcategorisation restrictions hold only between a head and its complement, not between a head and its adjuncts. Exercise-I:  Exercise-I Identify the complements and adjuncts in the following NPs: your reply [to my letter] the attack [on Starr] the loss [of the ship] John’s disgust [at Mary’s behavior] his disillusionment [with life] the book [on the table] the advertisement [on the television] the fight [after the match] his resignation [because of the scandal] a cup [with a broken handle] Exercise-II:  Exercise-II Provide trees for the bracketed NPs in the following sentences: I met [a specialist in fibreoptics from Japan]. [The journey from Mumbai to Delhi on the Christmas Day] was tiring. [The discussion of the riots in the bar] was full and frank. [The solution to the problem given by John] is better than the solution given by Mary. [The solution to last week’s quiz on page 20] is a better one.
