A Deterministic Dependency Parser for Japanese

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract / Description of output

We present a rule-based, deterministic dependency parser for Japanese. It was implemented in C++, using object classes that reflect linguistic concepts and thus facilitate the transfer of linguistic intuitions into code. The parser first chunks morphemes into one-word phrases and then parses from the right to the left. The average parsing accuracy is 83.6%.
