Robust Processing for Constraint-based Grammar Formalisms

  title={Robust Processing for Constraint-based Grammar Formalisms},
  author={Frederik Fouvry},
This thesis addresses the issue of how Natural Language Processing (nlp) systems using ‘constraint-based’ grammar formalisms can be made robust, i.e. able to deal with input which is in some way ill-formed or extragrammatical. In nlp systems which use constraint-based grammars the operation of unification typically plays a central role. Accordingly, the central concern of this thesis is to propose an approach to robust unification. The first part of the thesis underlines the importance of… CONTINUE READING
