Some Chart-Based Techniques for Parsing Ill-Formed Input

  title={Some Chart-Based Techniques for Parsing Ill-Formed Input},
  author={Chris Mellish},
We argue for the usefulness of an active chart as the basis of a system that searches for the globally most plausible explanation of failure to syntactically parse a given input. We suggest semantics-free, grammarindependent techniques for parsing inputs displaying simple kinds of ill-formedness and discuss the search issues involved.
