Working with Tree-Adjoining Grammars

Topic: 
Language & Computation
Level: 
Introductory
Abstract: 

This course provides an introduction into the Tree-Adjoining Grammar [TAG] formalism, in particular Lexicalized Tree-Adjoining Grammar [LTAG] and Multi-Compontent TAG [MCTAG] together with grammar implementations and tools for parsing with TAG: TuLiPA and XMG. During the course we will show the importance of TAG and related formalisms in computational linguistics, providing syntactic and semantic analyses of different linguistic phenomena, as well as introducing implementations that show the adequacy of the formalism for natural language analysis.
