- Course objectives
- This course aims at introducing state-of-the-art methods for parsing of natural languages, their theoretical background, algorithms and practical implementations and applications.
- Theoretical background: historical overview, state of the art in parsing methods (phrase-structure parsing, dependency parsing, chunking) and trends, advanced formalisms: HPSG, LFG, CCG, DG, TAG.
- Algorithms and practical implementations: algorithms, implementations, applications and evaluation of parsing (treebanks, tree similarity measurement techniques).
- Teaching methods
- Lectures, practical homework assignments.
- Assessment methods
- Homework assignments and a final written test; minimum pass level 70 %.
