What is the speaker referring to when, talking about two phrasal verbs, they say
They may be equivalent as far as the DMV is concerned, but they're not equivalent from the point of view of language.
I looked up DMV and I think it is an initialisation of the Dependency Model with Valence, I found a reference and an explanation (of sorts) in a book titled Grammatical Inference for Computational Linguistics but despite reading its description, I still cannot get to grips with it, i.e. I don't understand.
DMV. The Dependency Model with Valence (DMV) is an unsupervised dependency parser. Instead of a one-to-many mapping between non-terminals (on the left-hand side) and terminals or non-terminals (on the right-hand-side) in, for instance, context-free grammar, dependency models are a one-to-one mapping. Essentially, dependencies describe head-dependent relationships between the words in a sentence. This results in directed acyclic graphs; for instance, like the one depicted in Figure 4.6.
Unfortunately, Figure 4.6 is missing from my preview.
Could someone please explain, in layman's terms, what DMV is and provide examples where a verb with two different prepositions can have very similar meanings, which can be equivalent to DMV, but not equivalent from a language point of view.
For example, would go round and go around OR look through and look over be equivalent to DMV but not from a language point of view? Why?
