|Title:||Parser Release: TuLiPA|
|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

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