A Factored Functional Dependency Transformation of the English Penn Treebank for Probabilistic Surface Generation

Irene Langkilde-Geary, Justin Betteridge


Abstract
This paper describes a featurized functional dependency corpus automatically derived from the Penn Treebank. Each word in the corpus is associated with over three dozen features describing the functional syntactic structure of a sentence as well as some shallow morphology. The corpus was created for use in probabilistic surface generation, but could also be useful as a resource for the study of English and the development of other NLP applications.
