Advances in Probabilistic and Other Parsing Technologies
Advances in Probabilistic and Other Parsing Technologies edited by Harry Bunt (Tilburg University, The Netherlands) & Anton Nijholt (University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands)
TEXT, SPEECH AND LANGUAGE TECHNOLOGY Volume 16
The book gives a state-of-the-art overview of current research and development in parsing technologies.
