Towards Probabilistic Unification-Based Parsing

H.W.L. ter Doest

Abstract

This thesis is about natural language parsing with corpus-based grammars that are enriched with statistics. Parsing is the process of analysing the syntactic structure of an utterance. The role of statistics is to improve the parsing process. Our research is done in the context of the SCHISMA project, in which a natural language dialogue system for theatre information and booking services is developed.
