A Fundamental Algorithm for Dependency Parsing ( with corrections )

  title={A Fundamental Algorithm for Dependency Parsing ( with corrections )},
  author={A. Michael},
This paper presents a fundamental algorithm for parsing natural language sentences into dependency trees. Unlike phrase-structure (constituency) parsers, this algorithm operates one word at a time, attaching each word as soon as it can be attached, corresponding to properties claimed for the parser in the human brain. Like phrasestructure parsing, its worst-case complexity is O(n), but in human language, the worst case occurs only for small n.
