A robust and hybrid deep-linguistic theory applied to large scale parsing


Schneider, G; Rinaldi, Fabio; Dowdall, J (2004). A robust and hybrid deep-linguistic theory applied to large scale parsing. In: COLING-2004 Robust Methods in Analysis of Natural language Data, Geneva, Switzerland, August 2004 - August 2004, 14-23.

Abstract

Modern statistical parsers are robust and quite fast, but their output is relatively shallow when compared to formal grammar parsers. We suggest to extend statistical approaches to a more deep-linguistic analysis while at the same time
keeping the speed and low complexity of a statistical parser. The resulting parsing architecture suggested, implemented and evaluated here is highly robust and hybrid on a number of levels, combining statistical and rule-based approaches, constituency and dependency grammar, shallow and deep processing, full and nearfull parsing. With its parsing speed of about 300,000 words per hour and state-of-the-art performance the parser is reliable for a number of large-scale applications discussed in the article.
