Subject: Syntax-Discourse Interface
Question: I am a masters student in Computational Linguistics, and I would like to work in the area of Syntax-Discourse Interface for improving the parser outputs. When I browsed the internet, I came to see papers/books regarding only psycholinguistics/language acquisition based Syntax-Discourse Interface. But what I need is just the effects of discourse on syntax or vice verse. I would like to know if there is any good work has been done in this area especially in computational linguistics.
