Book Information


Title: Natural Language Parsing
Subtitle: Psychological, Computational, and Theoretical Perspectives
Edited By: David R. Dowty
Lauri Karttunen
Arnold M. Zwicky
Series Title: Studies in Natural Language Processing

This is a collection of new papers by leading researchers on natural
language parsing. In the past, the problem of how people parse the
sentences they hear - determine the identity of the words in these
sentences and group these words into larger units - has been addressed in
very different ways by experimental psychologists, by theoretical
linguists, and by researchers in artificial intelligence, with little
apparent relationship among the solutions proposed by each group. However,
because of important advances in all these disciplines, research on parsing
in each of these fields now seems to have something significant to
contribute to the others, as this volume demonstrates. The volume includes
some papers applying the results of experimental psychological studies of
parsing to linguistic theory, others which present computational models of
parsing, and a mathematical linguistics paper on tree-adjoining grammars
and parsing.
