A Latent Variable Model for Generative Dependency Parsing

Ivan Titov, James Henderson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Dependency parsing has been a topic of active research in natural language processing during the last several years. The CoNLL-2006 shared task (Buchholz and Marsi, 2006) made a wide selection of standardized treebanks for different languages available for the research community and allowed for easy comparison between various statistical methods on a standardized benchmark. One of the surprising things discovered by this evaluation is that the best results are achieved by methods which are quite different from state-of-the-art models for constituent parsing, e.g. the deterministic parsing method of Nivre et al. (2006) and the minimum spanning tree parser of McDonald et al.
