  • Converting an automatic word quiz creation application into an open-source tool

    2020年  

     概要を見る

    Word Quiz Constructor (WQC: Rose 2014) is a Java console application designed to automatically generate vocabulary quizzes with questions testing learners’ knowledge of Academic Word List (AWL: Coxhead 2000) words. This project’s aim was to prepare the project for public distribution in two ways: (1) Develop the application for greater user customizability while evaluating its custom features to suggest optimal settings for different scenarios and (2) converting the application to a publicly distributable archive. For the development aim, WQC was further implemented with the capability to make use of different readability algorithms which are useful for controlling the difficulty level of stem sentences in cloze questions. It was also further implemented to make use of different frequency lists for checking the frequency of tri-gram sequences surrounding target words. The optimal configuration overall was found to be that using the Linsear Write readability algorithm with the British Academic Written English (BAWE) corpus frequency list and drawing carrier sentences from Simple English Wikipedia. The Coronavirus situation pressed WQC into full-time service in the English program with the creation of question banks. Results showed good discrimination ability of the questions produced. Finally, the second aim was achieved with the publication of a distributable application on the Roselab web site (author’s university web page).

  • Modeling speech fluency for open-source e-learning application development

    2019年   Sheppard, Chris, Kinoshita, Naoko, Shinohara, Yasuaki, Sagisaka, Yoshiori, Kondo, Mariko, Sun, Yue

     概要を見る

    This project aims to develop a shareable model of second language speech fluency that can be utilized by both language teaching practitioners as well as language learning technology engineers and programmers. This year’s efforts were focused on two main goals:  first, continued development and validation of a speaking practice application called Fluidity that embodies such a model; and second, the organization of an exchange of ideas regarding fluency modeling for theoretical and practical purposes. On the first goal, the Fluidity application detection mechanisms were subjected to some acoustic validation tests to gauge how accurately the speech, pause, and syllable detection mechanisms work. The results of these tests were quite positive, showing that Fluidity performs better than a widely-used script based on the Praat acoustic phonetics analysis tool. These results are to be published in the proceedings of the annual Speech Prosody conference. On the second goal, informal discussions with the research collaborators generated interesting ideas about fluency modeling including a debate about how to make such modeling useful to such diverse fields as pedagogy and engineering. Unfortunately, a plan to host a public meeting to discuss these topics could not be carried out due to the COVID-19 situation.

  • Readers' inferences from filled pauses in written texts

    2018年  

     概要を見る

    In work by Bailey and Ferreira (2003), listeners who heard filled pause disfluencies (i.e., “uh uh”) at structural non-boundary locations (e.g., (2) below) judged the sentence stimuli as ungrammatical more often than when the disfluency was at (or very near to) a boundary location (e.g., (1) below). They interpreted this as evidence of a structural signalling effect of filled pauses.(1) [While [the man hunted] the uh uh deer ran into the woods].(2) [While [the man hunted] the deer uh uh ran into the woods].With the rapid rise of social media, filled pauses are being increasingly observed even in print material like blogs and messaging. Therefore, it is an open question whether printed filled pauses may have comparable effects on readers. The present work seeks to examine whether the structural signalling effect extends to the reading of written stimuli. Similar to the previous work, readers judged sentences like (2) as ungrammatical more often. Furthermore, in a self-paced reading paradigm, participants’ reading times were slower in the first three regions (words) after a printed disfluency in a nonboundary location. This suggests the effect is robust across perceptual paradigms.This research was conducted via Amazon Mechanical Turk and the results were reported at the CUNY 2019 Human Sentence Processing Conference.

  • Providing automatic realtime feedback on temporal parameters of speech for second language fluency development

    2017年  

     概要を見る

    This research project focused on the development and user testing of a computer application called Fluidity which is designed to help second language learners develop their speed fluency by giving real-time feedback on fluency-related features of speechin a manner that resembles human-human communication.At first, several speech researchers in Lisbon, Portugal who are experts in second language fluency and digital signal processing were consulted. Their advice included detailed recommendations about application design and audio libraries for signal processing.Thereafter, Fluidity was completely reprogrammed. Two main practice functions were implemented: scripted speech and free speech practice. Also, a virtual character named Fludie was added, which gives feedback to the learner via facial expressions. Also implemented were different visualizations of the learner's speech for review purposes.Finally, Fluidity underwent user testing by a number of second language learners in Portugal, France, and the United States. Afterward, each user completed a survey about their experience. Responses to Fluidity were very positive, with many users saying they would likely use it for their own language learning purposes.The new version of Fluidity and results of user testing were presented to various professional audiences in Portugal, France, Germany, Belgium, and the United States, who gave expert suggestions for further development. It is anticipated that an alpha version of the application will be released during AY2018.

  • The production and perception of hesitation phenomena in native spoken and written English

    2015年  

     概要を見る

    Many if not most language perception phenomena have listening and reading correlates in psycholinguistic experimentation. In the perception of filled pauses (e.g., uh/um in English, e-to/ano in Japanese), experimental work has thus far looked only at filled pauses in speech showing that hearers process incoming speech differently when there are filled pauses. The present research therefore was a pilot experiment which sought to examine whether analogous results could be obtained in reading.The experiment used a self-paced reading task design with three syntactic configurations: subordinate clauses, coordinate clauses, and nouns of high contextual probability. The sentences were presented on scren in either a disfluent (with a filled pause) or fluent condition. The prediction was that the disfluent condition should generate processing difficulty and hence longer reading times.Results (N=22 native English speakers) showed that longer reading times were obtained in the disfluent condition in the region of interest (immediately after the filled pause). The results do not quite reach statistical significance, however, using mixed-effects modeling with fluency as a fixed effect and users and stimuli as random effects.  Future work will seek to increase the number of participants to that comparable to other studies of similar design.
