Statistical Parsing Algorithms for Lexicalized Tree Adjoining Grammars

STATISTICAL PARSING ALGORITHMS FOR LEXICALIZED TREE ADJOINING GRAMMARS Anoop Sarkar Supervisor: Professor Aravind Joshi The goal of this dissertation is two-fold: to develop the theory of probabilistic Tree Adjoining Grammars (TAGs) and to present some practical results in the form of e cient parsing and estimation algorithms for probabilistic TAGs. The… CONTINUE READING
