Discontinuities occur especially frequently in languages with a relatively free word order, such as German. Generally, due to the longdistance dependencies they induce, they lie beyond the expressivity of Probabilistic CFG, i.e., they cannot be directly reconstructed by a PCFG parser. In this paper, we use a parser for Probabilistic Linear Context-Free Rewriting Systems (PLCFRS), a formalism with high expressivity, to directly parse the German NeGra and TIGER treebanks. In both treebanks… Expand
