A stochastic parser is described which creates a phrase structure for a tagged sentence on the basis of statistical information inferred from a manually-bracketed training corpus. The information employed consists of measured probabilities for tag unigrams, symbol bigrams, bracket enclosures, bracket opening and closing, and length distribution. For experimental purposes a tree-search algorithm is used to find the highest-scoring bracketing, and a tree metric is used to measure the accuracy of… CONTINUE READING
