Using Extra-Linguistic Material for Mandarin-French Verbal Constructions Comparison

Abstract : Systematic cross-linguistic studies of verbs syntactic-semantic behaviors for ty- pologically distant languages such as Mandarin Chinese and French are difficult to conduct. Such studies are nevertheless necessary due to the crucial role that verbal constructions play in the mental lexicon. This paper addresses the problem by combining psycho-linguistics and computational methods. Psycho-linguistics provides us with a bilingual corpus that fea- tures verbal construction associated with carefully built extra-linguistic material (short video clips). Computational approaches bring us distributional semantic models (DSM) to measure the distance between linguistic elements in the extra-linguistic space. These models allows for cross-linguistic measures that we evaluate against manually annotated data. In this pa- per, we discuss the results, potential shortcomings involving cultural variability and how to measure such bias.
