2010 (English)In: Resource-Adaptive Cognitive Processes / [ed] Matthew W. Crocker, Jörg Siekmann, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2010, 365-388 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Syntactic representations based on word-to-word dependencies have a long tradition in descriptive linguistics . In recent years, they have also become increasingly used in computational tasks, such as information extraction , machine translation , and parsing . Among the purported advantages of dependency over phrase structure representations are conciseness, intuitive appeal, and closeness to semantic representations such as predicate-argument structures. On the more practical side, dependency representations are attractive due to the increasing availability of large corpora of dependency analyses, such as the Prague Dependency Treebank .
