Most work on neural natural language generation (NNLG) focus on controlling the content of the generated text. We experiment with controling several stylistic aspects of the generated text, in addition to its content. The method is based on conditioned RNN language model, where the desired content as well as the stylistic parameters serve as conditioning contexts. We demonstrate the approach on the movie reviews domain and show that it is successful in generating coherent sentences corresponding to the required linguistic style and content.
Improving a Strong Neural Parser with Conjunction-Specific Features

While dependency parsers reach very high overall accuracy, some dependency relations are much harder than others. In particular, dependency parsers perform poorly in coordination construction (i.e., correctly attaching the conj relation). We extend a state-of-the-art dependency parser with conjunction-specific features, focusing on the similarity between the conjuncts head words. Training the extended parser yields an improvement in conj attachment as well as in overall dependency parsing accuracy on the Stanford dependency conversion of the Penn TreeBank.
