The Plink parser is a human-like parser. It is deterministic, linear, and generates one interpretation. The current version of the system has a very weak semantics module.
Semantics is used in making parsing decisions. Two simple examples
In this case the boy is with the girl, where the telescope is the instrument of saw.
It is easy to encode these examples so that Plink can generate the
correct interpretations. However, it is quite difficult to do this for
all sentences. A common mechanism to 'learn' the semantics is to work
with large corpora, and find how things attach. This is effective for the
examples when a corpus contains several sentences of the form
The obvious solution is to take advantage of hierarchy. While there
may be no examples of
Exploration of these questions will aid Natural Language parsing. Additionally, it will provide an evaluation for ontologies.
