Robust Parsing and Beyond

Jean-Pierre Chanod
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.
