This paper presents a comparative study of probabilistic treebank parsing of German, using the Negra and TuBa-D/Z tree-banks. Experiments with the Stanford parser, which uses a factored PCFG and dependency model, show that, contrary to previous claims for other parsers, lexicalization of PCFG models boosts parsing performance for both treebanks. The experiments also show that there is a big difference in parsing performance, when trained on the Negra and on the TuBa-D/Z treebanks. Parser… Expand
