Is Starnone really the author behind Ferrante?

AbstractElena Ferrante is a pen name known worldwide, authoring novels such as the bestseller My Brilliant Friend. A recent study indicates that the true author behind these books is probably Domenico Starnone. This study aims to select a set of approved authorship methods and appropriate feature sets to prove, with as much certainty as possible, that this conclusion is correct. To achieve this, a corpus of contemporary Italian novels has been generated, containing 150 books written by forty authors (including seven by Ferrante).

A preordering model based on phrasal dependency tree

AbstractIntelligent machine translation (MT) is becoming an important field of research and development as the need for translations grows. Currently, the word reordering problem is one of the most important issues of MT systems. To tackle this problem, we present a source-side reordering method using phrasal dependency trees, which depict dependency relations between contiguous non-syntactic phrases. Reordering elements are automatically learned from a reordered phrasal dependency tree bank and are utilized to produce a source reordering lattice.
