Efficient Algorithms for Parsing the DOP Model? A Reply to Joshua Goodman
In previous work, we tested the DOP method on a cleaned-up set of analyzed part-of-speech strings from the Penn Treebank (Marcus et al., 1993), achieving excellent test results (Bod, 1993a,b).
Two Questions about Data-Oriented Parsing
Bod (1992, 1993a) shows that conventional context-free parsing techniques can be used in creating a parse forest for a sentence in DOP1.
Two Questions about Data-Oriented Parsing
To select the most probable parse from a forest, Bod (1993-95) and Rajman (1995a,b) give Monte Carlo approximation algorithms.
Two Questions about Data-Oriented Parsing
However, the accuracy of 64% is disappointingly bad when compared to exact match results reported on clean ATIS data: 96% in Bod (1995a), 90% to 95% in Carter & Rayner (1994). An explanation may be that the exact match metric is very sensitive to annotation errors.
Two Questions about Data-Oriented Parsing
The computational aspects of DOP2 are straightforward: we can basically employ the same algorithms as developed for DOP1 (Bod, 1995a). We only need to establish the unknown words of an input sentence and label them with all lexical categories.
Two Questions about Data-Oriented Parsing
In (Bod, 1995a), some interesting properties of DOP3 are derived. Among others, it is shown that DOP3 displays a preference for parses constructed by generalizing over a minimal number of words, and that DOP3 prefers parses that generalize over open-class words to parses that generalize over closed-class words.
