Textbook on Parsing TAG, MCFG/LCFRS and RCG

Laura Kallmeyer (2010): Parsing Beyond Context-Free Grammars. Springer.

Research

Until September 2010, I have been directing the Emmy Noether research project Eine lexikalisierte Baumgrammatik für ein Fragment des Deutschen unter Einbeziehung von Syntax und Semantik funded by the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). The project has started in 2005 and was associated to the SFB 833.

Research interests:

  • Tree Adjoining Grammars, mildly context-sensitive grammar formalisms, model-theoretic grammar formalisms
  • Parsing of mildly context-sensitive grammar formalisms: symbolic and probabilistic approaches, data-driven parsing of discontinuous constituency structures
  • Syntax-Semantics Interface, Underspecification, Semantics of scope
  • Scrambling in free word order languages, generative capacity necessary for natural languages
