On the automatic construction of LTAG Grammars from a Vietnamese Dictionary

Phan Thi Ha, Ha Hai Nam


This paper presents a method for automatically extracting lexicalized tree-adjoining grammars (LTAG) from a Vietnamese dictionary. A system for automatically extracting LTAG grammars for Vietnamese from an electronic dictionary has been implemented for evaluation purpose. The experiment results of the proposed method are evaluated against the results of extracting LTAG grammars from VietTreeBank.
