Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Title: Parser Release: TuLiPA
Submitter: Laura Kallmeyer
Description: We announce the first release of

***TuLiPA (Tübingen Linguistic Parsing Architecture)***

TuLiPA is a multi-formalism syntactic parser that is being developed at the
University of Tübingen. This parser currently supports Multi-Component Tree
Adjoining Grammars with Tree Tuples (TT-MCTAG), Tree Adjoining Grammars
(TAG) and Range Concatenation Grammars (RCG).

The first release of this parser is available under a GPL license at:


This release includes the following features:

*Graphical interface displaying the result of parsing (derivation tree,
derived tree, elementary trees involved)

*A robust mode allowing to display partial parses (and to detect the
feature structure mismatches),

*An XML export of the parsing results,

*The computation of dependency structures (using the DTool software
developed within the Chorus project at Saarland University).

TuLiPA is developed in Java, using the GecodeJ constraint programming
library (http://www.gecode.org/gecodej). This library is freely available
for major platforms.

TuLiPA is currently used for the development of a TT-MCTAG for German. For
more information (and for some TT-MCTAG, TAG and RCG examples), please
visit the TuLiPA webpage:

All comments, questions, feature requests and bug reports are welcome.

With best regards,
