Author: Pasi Tapanainen

FYI Body: DEMO AVAILABLE

A NEW SYNTACTIC PARSER FOR ENGLISH
----------------------------------

The parser can be tested at the URL
http://www.ling.helsinki.fi/~tapanain/dg/
which also contains further documentation.

Some properties of the system:
- It parses unrestricted tex
- It provides morphological and surface-syntactic analyses
- It is fast and accurate
- There are both character-based and graphical output formats,
though the latter is not available in the WWW yet.
The grammar
- is verb-centered dependency grammar
- has explicit head-modifier relations with some 30 functional
labels
