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


In this paper we present a method to induce a wide-coverage morpheme-cluster based CCG lexicon from Turkish dependency treebank. We use the sub-word level dependencies in the Turkish dependency treebank, and show that this lexicon performs better than its lexemic counterpart in explaining morphosyntactic behaviour in Turkish. It also aims to solve the data sparseness by allowing better statistics for morphologically decomposed words when compared to fully inflected counterparts.
