Parsing technologies are concerned with the automatic
decomposition of complex structures into their constituent parts,
with structures in formal or natural languages as their main, but
certainly not their only, domain of application. The focus of
Recent Advances in Parsing Technology is on parsing technologies
for linguistic structures, but it also contains chapters
concerned with parsing two or more dimensional languages.
 
New and improved parsing technologies are important not only for
achieving better performance in terms of efficiency, robustness,
coverage, etc., but also because the developments in areas
related to natural language processing give rise to new
requirements on parsing technologies. Ongoing research in the
areas of formal and computational linguistics and artificial
intelligence lead to new formalisms for the representation of
linguistic knowledge, and these formalisms and their application
in such areas as machine translation and language-based
interfaces call for new, effective approaches to
parsing. Moreover, advances in speech technology and multimedia
applications cause an increasing demand for parsing technologies
where language, speech, and other modalities are fully
integrated.
 
Recent Advances in Parsing Technology presents an overview of
recent developments in this area with an emphasis on new
approaches for parsing modern, constraint-based formalisms on
stochastic approaches to parsing, and on aspects of integrating
syntactic parsing in further processing.
