    Even deeper problems with neural network models of language.Thomas G. Bever, Noam Chomsky, Sandiway Fong & Massimo Piattelli-Palmarini - 2023 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 46:e387.
    We recognize today's deep neural network (DNN) models of language behaviors as engineering achievements. However, what we know intuitively and scientifically about language shows that what DNNs are and how they are trained on bare texts, makes them poor models of mind and brain for language organization, as it interacts with infant biology, maturation, experience, unique principles, and natural law.

    Semantic opposition and wordnet.Sandiway Fong - 2004 - Journal of Logic, Language and Information 13 (2):159-171.
    We consider the problem of semantic opposition; in particular, theproblem of determining adjective-verb opposition for transitive changeof state verbs and adjectivally modified grammatical objects. Semanticopposition problems of this type are a sub-case of the classic FrameProblem; the well-known problem of knowing what is preserved orchanged in the world as a result of some action or event. Bydefinition, grammatical objects of change of state verbs undergomodification. In cases where the object is adjectivally modified, theproblem reduces to determining whether the property denoted (...)
