Experiments with Corpus-based LFG Specialization

Nicola Cancedda, Christer Samuelsson
Sophisticated grammar formalisms, such as LFG, allow concisely capturing complex linguistic phenomena. The powerful operators provided by such formalisms can however introduce spurious ambiguity, making parsing inefficient. A simple form of corpus-based grammar pruning is evaluated experimentally on two wide-coverage grammars, one English and one French. Speedups of up to a factor 6 were obtained, at a cost in grammatical coverage of about 13%. A two-stage architecture allows achieving significant speedups without introducing additional parse failures.
