A New Hybrid Dependency Parser for German


Sennrich, Rico; Schneider, Gerold; Volk, Martin; Warin, Martin (2009). A New Hybrid Dependency Parser for German. In: Chiarcos, Christian; de Castilho, Richard Eckart; Stede, Manfred. Von der Form zur Bedeutung: Texte automatisch verarbeiten / From Form to Meaning: Processing Texts Automatically. Proceedings of the Biennial GSCL Conference 2009. Tübingen: Narr, 115-124.

Abstract

We describe the development of a new German parser that
uses a hybrid approach, combining a hand-written rule-based grammar with a probabilistic disambiguation system. Our evaluation shows that this parsing approach can compete with state-of-the-art systems both in terms of efficiency and parsing quality. The hybrid approach also allows for the integration of the morphology tool GERTWOL, which leads to a comparatively high precision for core syntactic relations.
