The C&C CCG parser is a highly efficient linguistically motivated parser. The efficiency is achieved using a tightly-integrated supertagger, which assigns CCG lexical categories to words in a sentence. The integration allows the parser to request more categories if it cannot find a spanning analysis. We present several enhancements to the CKY chart parsing algorithm used by the parser. The first proposal is chart repair, which allows the chart to be efficiently updated by adding lexical… CONTINUE READING
