Pablo Picasso Feliciano de Faria

PhD in Linguistics at Universidade Estadual de Campinas (since 2013) with emphasis on Computational Linguistics and Language Acquisition. My main interests are natural language prossessing (parsing, translation, etc.), syntactic theory and grammatical formalisms, language acquisition and psycholinguistics. I have a multidisciplinary academic background, which includes a bachelor's degree in Computer Sciences, a graduate course in Information Systems at Universidade Federal de Goiás, and Master's and PhD in Linguistics. Besides that, I worked for more than 10 years as a software developer (from 1998 to 2010) and also worked as a semi-professional musician (guitarist and singer) from 2000 to 2006, having recorded a solo CD.

2013 - PresentMemória conquistense: implementação de um corpus digital
Description: O avanço tecnológico da pesquisa de corpus permite aos lingüistas a precisão e a agilidade tão almejada nas ciências da linguagem, pois, com o uso de ferramentas automáticas poder-se-á descrever e analisar grandes corpora em uma velocidade bastante razoável para a pesquisa lingüística. Dando continuidade ao trabalho já iniciado na UESB por Santos et al. (2010) e contribuindo com a ideia da recuperabilidade automática de informações para a pesquisa e da pesquisa, o presente projeto visa à disponibilização de textos antigos no formato singular do texto digital, guiado pelo critério básico da transparência da codificação, o grau de independência da linguagem de anotação com relação a aplicativos de processamento e a abertura da linguagem de anotação do corpus Tycho Brahe, que nos serve de modelo. Desse modo, almeja-se a construção de um corpus digital que parte de documentos históricos, manuscritos e impressos de diferentes gêneros, guardados em arquivos públicos e/ou particulares da Bahia, principalmente da cidade de Vitória da Conquista, contribuindo, dessa maneira, com a implementação de produtos de grande interesse para a comunidade científica..

2012 - PresentA língua portuguesa no tempo e no espaço: contato linguístico, gramáticas em competição e mudança paramétrica
Description: The main goal of this project is to revisit the history of Portuguese, from the 15th to the 20th century, in Portugal and in the Brazil-Africa axis, through a comparative approach based on the notion of parameter, as it is developed in the minimalist version of Chomsky's Principle and Parameter Theory. To attain our goal, we'll make use of the syntactically annotated texts available in the Tycho Brahe Corpus, which allow the automatic search of syntactic constructions. As part of the project, the annotated database of the Corpus will be enlarged to 1.500.000 words from Portuguese texts, 600.000 words from Brazilian texts, and 150.000 words from African documents. It is also intended to build a syntactic parser for Portuguese. (AU).

2005 - 2010Padrões rítmicos, fixação de parâmetros e mudança lingüística, fase 2
Description: The project rhythmic patterns, parameter setting and language change, phase II, is the continuation of the homonymous project (http://www.ime.usp.br/~tycho). Its first goal is to broaden and consolidate the Tycho Brahe Parsed Corpus of Historical Portuguese (http://www.ime.usp.br/~tycho/corpus), built during the former project, in the following directions: - diversification of the types, periods and spaces of production of the texts. The extended Corpus will contain texts from Portuguese authors born during the 14th and 15th centuries, texts whose authors are uncertain or unknown, non-literary texts, and texts produced in Brazil; - syntactic parsing of the texts using the system developed during the first phase. At the end of the project, the Corpus will have two million words syntactically annotated; - restructuring of the Corpus in XML language, according to the international patterns of Corpus codification. The second goal of the project is to use the revised Corpus to deepen the study of Middle Portuguese, the intermediary phase between Old Portuguese and the modern variants of the language, with the following questions in mind: - What are the grammatical features of Middle Portuguese?; - What is its trajectory in time?; - What is the role of prosodic change in the emergence of Modern European Portuguese?. The project is anchored in one of the main research tines of modern Linguistics whose goal is to understand what yields linguistic change, and how this change proceeds in time. As in the previous project, the poorly addressed issue of the interaction between rhythm and syntax in change is emphasized. Moreover, we face the methodological challenge of the detection of prosodic patterns in written texts. Finally, by describing and analyzing the language state that gave birth to the two main modern variants of Portuguese, we set up the basis for a comparative history of Brazilian and Modern European Portuguese. To attain these goals, we will articulate qualitative analysis with quantitative methods, putting together, on one side, generative grammar theory and prosodic phonology, and, on the other side, descriptive statistics and stochastic modeling. Such interdisciplinary approach relates the Project to spearhead frameworks in language change studies that combine the use of large amounts of data (made possible through the advances in computer sciences) with solidly grounded theoretical research. Finally, by bringing together scholars from varied backgrounds - syntacticians, phonologists, statisticians, probabilists, computer scientists and computational linguists - and fostering knowledge interchange, the project mar contribute to a refreshed outlook for the field. The core team of the project will work in tight collaboration other research groups... (AU).
