Dependency Parsing

From Cohen Courses
Jump to navigationJump to search

This refers to the problem of analyzing a text to produce a grammatical structure with respect to a dependency grammar (a class of syntactic theories that are all based on the dependency relation). Dependency grammars are distinct from phrase structure grammars (constituency grammars) because they lack phrasal nodes. Structure is determined by the relation between a word and its dependents. Dependency structures are flatter than constituency structures, and are thus well suited to languages with free word order, such as Czech and Turkish.
