PLCFRS Parsing Revisited: Restricting the Fan-Out to Two
TLDR
A parser for binary PLCFRS of fan-out two, together with a novel monotonous estimate for A parsing, with which we conduct experiments on modified versions of the German NeGra treebank and the Discontinuous Penn Treebank in which all trees have block degree two. Expand

Synchronous Linear Context-Free Rewriting Systems for Machine Translation
TLDR
We propose synchronous linear context-free rewriting systems as an extension to synchronous context- free grammars in which synchronized non-terminals span k 1 continuous blocks on each side of the bitext. Expand

A Finite-State Approach to Schwa/Zero Alternations in French
Tranel (1999, 2000) presents an approach to interconsonantal schwa/zero alternations in French within the framework of Optimality Theory. The paper at hand extends this approach by providing generalExpand
