CitationYves Schabes and Stuart M. Shieber. An alternative conception of tree-adjoining derivation. In Proceedings of the 30th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics, pages 167-176, University of Delaware, Newark, Delaware, June 28-July 2 1992.
AbstractThe precise formulation of derivation for tree-adjoining grammars has important ramifications for a wide variety of uses of the formalism, from syntactic analysis to semantic interpretation and statistical language modeling. We argue that the definition of tree-adjoining derivation must be reformulated in order to manifest the proper linguistic dependencies in derivations. The particular proposal is both precisely characterizable, through a compilation to linear indexed grammars, and computationally operational, by virtue of an efficient algorithm for recognition and parsing.
