A Data-Oriented Parsing demo which constructs a syntactic analysis for a given sentence based on a model learned from a corpus of annotated sentences.
Data-Oriented Parsing is a framework developed at ILLC based on the notion that language use relies on the recombination of exemplars and fragments from memory (the model has been applied to other forms of cognitions such as music and reasoning as well). Based on the programmatic paper of Scha (1990), an implementation based on Tree-Substitution Grammar was proposed by Bod (1992). This demo shows the latest implementation, described in van Cranenburgh et al. (2016), and developed as part of the PhD research of the first author. The model in this demo supports multiple languages, grammatical function labels, and discontinuous constituents.
