LR parsing for Tree Adjoining Grammars
and its application to corpus-based natural language parsing
Giorgio Satta, Universit di Padova, Italy
Aravind K. Joshi
This thesis develops the formal aspects of LR parsing for Tree Adjoining
Grammars(TAGs) and investigates its application to natural language
It is argued that the combination of TAGs and the LR technique is beneficial
to both sides. On the one hand, starting from the observation that the rich
descriptions provided by Tree Adjoining Grammars are better suited to the
description of natural languages than Context Free Grammars, we look for an
efficient parsing algorithm that gives a single analysis per sentence.
On the other direction, the LR technique is argued to benefit from the rich
descriptive power of the Tree Adjoining Grammars, leading to better parsing
accuracy than when aplied to Context Free Grammars.
