  title={Accurate Unlexicalized Parsing},
  author={Dan Klein and Christopher D. Manning},
We demonstrate that an unlexicalized PCFG can parse much more accurately than previously shown, by making use of simple, linguistically motivated state splits, which break down false independence assumptions latent in a vanilla treebank grammar. Indeed, its performance of 86.36% (LP/LR F 1) is better than that of earlylexicalizedPCFG models, and surprisingly close to the current state-of-theart. This result has potential uses beyond establishing a strong lower bound on the maximum possible… CONTINUE READING
