DFKI-LT - A Head-Driven Approach to Incremental and Parallel Generation of Syntactic Structures
A Head-Driven Approach to Incremental and Parallel Generation of Syntactic Structures
1 Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Computational Linguistics volume 2,
This paper describes the construction of syntactic structures within an incremental multi-level and parallel generation system. Incremental and parallel generation imposes special requirements upon syntactic description and processing. A head-driven grammar represented in a unification-based formalism is introduced which satisfies these demands. Furthermore the basic mechanisms for the parallel processing of syntactic segments are presented.
