    lab WordsEye allows for the automatic generation of 3D scenes from written input The WELT tool will have two modes of operation In the first mode English input will automatically generate a picture which can be used to elicit a targeted description in the language being studied In the second mode linguists will use an intuitive interface to develop a formal grammar of spatial expressions for the language they are researching The tool will automatically incorporate this grammar into the existing WordsEye infrastructure to create a text to scene system for the new language Linguists can use this system to verify their grammar with native speakers easily making changes to it in realtime While we intend that the tool will be generally useful we are initially developing WELT based on scenarios involving Arrernte an Australian aboriginal language http www cs columbia edu mulinski arrernte Participants Morgan Ulinski Bob Coyne Julia Hirschberg Owen Rambow Alexandra Orth Inna Fetissova Northeastern University Myfany Turpin University of Queensland Daniel Kaufman Endangered Language Alliance Mark Dras Macquarie University Identifying Deceptive Speech Across Cultures The aim of this research is to increase our scientific understanding of deceptive behavior as it is practiced and perceived within and across cultures A secondary goal is to develop state of the art techniques to detect deceptive behaviors in spoken language We are building a new corpus of deceptive and non deceptive speech using subjects from American Mandarin and Arabic adult native speakers We will then examine cues to deception including acoustic prosodic and lexical features subject dependent features and entrainment We also plan to investigate personality influences on deceptive behavior Participants Julia Hirschberg Michelle Levine Barnard Andrew Rosenberg CUNY Queens Sarah Ita Levitan Laura Willson Nishmar Cestero Elizabeth Petitti Molly Scott BABEL The BABEL program aims to develop spoken keyword search systems for diverse low resource languages Our group focuses on the use of prosodic features for improving recognition accuracy and keyword search performance as well as experiments in cross lingual adaptation of models for identifying prosodic events Participants Victor Soto Erica Cooper Andrew Rosenberg Julia Hirschberg Extracting Paraphrase Rules from FrameNet and WordNet FrameNet organizes lexical units into semantic frames with associated frame elements which represent the core roles of that frame Each frame also contains annotated sentences mapping grammatical function to frame element role for the sample sentences In our research we ve extracted patterns from these annotated sentences to form paraphrase rules that cover conversives e g buy sell as well as other meaning preserving verb transformations and alternations such as The rats swarmed around the room The room was teeming with rats Participants Bob Coyne Owen Rambow WordsEye Automatic Text to Scene Conversion We live in a vast sea of ever changing text with few tools available to help us visualize its meaning The goal of this research is to bridge the gap between graphics and language by developing new theoretical models and supporting technology to create a system that automatically converts descriptive text into rendered 3D scenes representing the meaning of that text This builds upon previous work done with Richard Sproat in the WordsEye text to scene system available online at www wordseye com New research directions include the lexical semantics and knowledge acquisition needed to semi automatically construct a new scenario based lexical resource This resource will be used in decoding and making explicit the oblique contextual elements common in descriptive language for the purposes of graphical depiction http www1 cs columbia edu coyne coyne research html Participants Bob Coyne Owen Rambow Julia Hirschberg Gino Micelli Cecilia Schudel Daniel Bauer Morgan Ulinski Richard Sproat OHSU Masoud Rouhizadeh OHSU Yilei Yang Sam Wiseman Jack Crawford Kenny Harvey Mi Zhou Yen Han Lin Margit Bowler Reed College Victor Soto Speaker Entrainment in Dialogue Systems In conversation people entrain to their partner by adopting that partner s word choice or by adapting aspects of their speaking style such as speaking rate or pitch range or intensity Such synchronization is critical to the success of human human interactions While lexical entrainment has been investigated experimentally in a number of studies other types of entrainment have received less attention In this project we are investigating entrainment along dimensions such as intonational contour pitch accent phrasing rate pitch range intensity laughter turn taking and backchanneling behaviors An investigation of these behaviors will support the design of better Spoken Dialogue Systems While entrainment has been proposed as an important method for inducing users to adopt the system s lexical items to improve recognition accuracy few studies have examined the importance of systems entraining to their users to promote more successful and human like exchanges

hypothesizes pitch accents and phrase boundaries consistent with the ToBI prosodic annotation standard The toolkit incluides an acoustic feature extraction frontend and a classification backend supported by the Weka machine learning toolkit http eniac cs qc cuny edu andrew autobi index html Participants Julia Hirschberg Andrew Rosenberg Deception in Speech This project consisted in examining the feasibility of automatic detection of deception in speech using linguistic prosodic and other acoustic cues We were particularly interested in how individual differences affect the behavior of deceivers and how such differences affect the ability of individuals to detect deception Our study produced the first cleanly recorded labeled corpus of deceptive speech the Columbia SRI Colorado CSC Corpus Our elicitation paradigm created a context in which the subject was positively motivated to deceive an interviewer in contrast to studies in which subjects are placed in situations where they are led to lie about potentially guilt inducing behavior We investigated deception on two levels we considered the speaker s overall intention to deceive or
