Thanks for open sourcing the code.
After your commit:

I get 63.26 in ppl and not the 55.6 stated in the paper. However before this commit I get 55.6. Is there something I am missing?

Thanks for your interest. Commit 2734eb2 fixed a bug in the evaluation process. After the fix, we had to further tune the model's hyper-parameters to reach a good performance. The best number we could reach was 56.3. We have updated the paper and will soon role out a commit to fix the bug in the code. We apologize for the mistake.

Could you update the script to use the architecture and hyperparameters you used to get to the 56.3 perplexity reported in the paper? Thanks!
