@ojahnn So I have one file in which I declare the dependencies between files and what to call to generate them, and the commands I actually type only ever contain one filename, the one I currently want to build.

via Twitter for Android in reply to texttheater

@ojahnn I always call my scripts through a build automation system like Make (very limited), Produce (wrote that myself to get around Make's limitations), or xymake (haven't tried it yet but keep meaning to).

via Twitter for Android in reply to ojahnn

ojahnn @mmbollmann I've thought about a pre-conference "buddy program" where a small # of people find each other to form a peer group going into the conference, just to make the event less overwhelming by getting into it gradually. The "little push" you mention could surely come from such a group.

arielmc_g Interestingly Regardless also has a negative meaning! This suggests to me that there is something special about negation that makes it easy to combine multiple instances w/o changing the meaning (see also the widespread use of double negative syntactic constructions in languages)

via Twitter Web App (retweeted on 8:28 PM, Jul 9th, 2020 via Twitter for Android)

arielmc_g In fact, one pleasant side effect of having both -ic and -ical words is that they express different shades of meaning. Historic means 'notable in history'; Historical means 'relating to history or past events'.

We gain expressivity at the small cost of morphological irregularity

via Twitter Web App (retweeted on 8:27 PM, Jul 9th, 2020 via Twitter for Android)

arielmc_g There are *plenty* of morphologically irregular words in English. For example, there are approximately 200 verbs with irregular past tense forms. Yet no one is up in arms that we say 𝘀𝗮𝗻𝗴, 𝘄𝗿𝗼𝘁𝗲, and 𝘄𝗮𝘀 instead of 𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴+𝗲𝗱, 𝘄𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗲+𝗲𝗱, and 𝗯𝗲+𝗲𝗱.

via Twitter Web App (retweeted on 8:26 PM, Jul 9th, 2020 via Twitter for Android)

arielmc_g The core thing to know is that Irregardless isn’t some sort of freakish monstrosity, standing hideously apart from all the other beautiful, perfectly formed words of English. All it is is morphologically irregular, which means that it’s not a strict combination of its parts.

LinguaCelta I have just discovered that Welsh has the term "ieithgi" (literally "language dog"); an insulting term for a person whose main interest is in the study of language rather than literature. BRB, changing my Twitter bio.

yoavgo indeed. this is a big issue, and i've certainly observed it in my work as well.

currently, only NLP people can build NLP systems. but we don't want to, because the incentive structure is all against it.

possible ways forward:
1/ change incentive structure
2/ democratize NLP twitter.com/lucyluwang/sta…

_inesmontani @yoavgo I think an important aspect here is that research (rightly) focuses on what generalises, while a lot of the most valuable aspects of "real world" and industry problems are the ones that are very *specific*. They're often not solved by just throwing some large model at them.

remcoknooi @texttheater This is also a good point: better speech tech can mitigate this. Challenges: when is it typography and when is it math? And does it need to be read differently from normal text because it does index *something*?

Well said and I see the problem, but can we focus a bit more on making screenreaders that allow for creativity instead of shaming people for it? As a starting point, I see some fun bachelor/master projects in language technology and related fields here. twitter.com/remcoknooi/sta…
