Combining Dependency Parsing with PP Attachment

  title={Combining Dependency Parsing with PP Attachment},
  author={Sandra K{\"u}bler and Steliana Ivanova and Eva Klett},
Prepositional phrase (PP) attachment is one of the major sources for errors in traditional statistical parsers. The reason for that lies in the type of information necessary for resolving structural ambiguities. For parsing, it is assumed that distributional information of parts-of-speech and phrases is sufficient for disambiguation. For PP attachment, in contrast, lexical information is needed.
