Using the Incremental Finite-State Architecture to create a Spanish Shallow Parser
Nuria Gala Pavia
This paper describes a Spanish Shallow Parser built using the Incremental Finite-State Parsing Architecture
(IFSP). This approach for Shallow Parsing permits a constructivist syntactic analysis: each transducer uses
as input 1 the result of the analysis given by the previous transducer for obtaining a more accurate syntactic
analysis. The output is a bracketed and annotated text where main segments and syntactic functions are
identified. The different transducers which make up the shallow parser are built using regular expressions
which describe the syntactic characteristics of the language to parse, in this case Spanish.
