Because Size Does Matter: The Hamburg Dependency Treebank
Kilian A. Foth | Arne Köhn | Niels Beuck | Wolfgang Menzel
Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC'14)

We present the Hamburg Dependency Treebank (HDT), which to our knowledge is the largest dependency treebank currently available. It consists of genuine dependency annotations, i. e. they have not been transformed from phrase structures. We explore characteristics of the treebank and compare it against others. To exemplify the benefit of large dependency treebanks, we evaluate different parsers on the HDT. In addition, a set of tools will be described which help working with and searching in the treebank.

Subtree Parsing to Speed up Deep Analysis
Kilian Foth | Wolfgang Menzel
Proceedings of the Eighth International Conference on Parsing Technologies

Within a grammar formalism that treats syntax analysis as a global optimization problem, methods are investigated to improve parsing performance by recombining the solutions of smaller and easier subproblems. The robust nature of the formalism allows the application of this technique with little change to the original grammar.

A Transformation-based Parsing Technique With Anytime Properties
Kilian Foth | Ingo Schröder | Wolfgang Menzel
Proceedings of the Sixth International Workshop on Parsing Technologies

A transformation-based approach to robust parsing is presented, which achieves a strictly monotonic improvement of its current best hypothesis by repeatedly applying local repair steps to a complex multi-level representation. The transformation process is guided by scores derived from weighted constraints. Besides being interruptible, the procedure exhibits a performance profile typical for anytime procedures and holds great promise for the implementation of time-adaptive behaviour.
