Abstract:
Robust analysis covers not only processing partially ungrammatical input, but more generally unrestricted text
as actually produced by end-users in various situations. While early work in robust analysis dates back to the
seventies, the topic has recently gained broader attention, due to the large quantities of textual data now
available in electronic form (e.g. technical documentation, news, web pages, email, voice system). This article
first introduces the notion of robust parsing in natural language processing. It then reviews a series of linguistic
phenomena that illustrate the need for specific approaches to robust parsing. Finally, it mentions some of
pioneer and recent work in robust parsing.
