ambiguity

Using the simple tagset of the current system the degree of syntactic ambiguity found is shown in table 4.4.

Despite these modifications, syntactic ambiguity remains a large problem for generative systems.

There are ways to reduce the problems posed by syntactic ambiguity .

A similar technique is used to resolve anaphoric references and similar syntactic ambiguities .

Many of the words in the lexicon have a high degree of syntactic ambiguity .

The resolution of syntactic ambiguity is one of the tasks to be performed by semantic analysis.

analysis

But what is routine in phonological analysis often presents problems in syntactic analysis.

The syntactic analysis revolves mainly around the study of adverbial and participial structures in the narrative.

Brown suggests that large improvements may be achieved by incorporating simple morphological and/or syntactic analysis based on probabilistic methods.

However for examples 2 and 4, syntactic analysis would not identify any problems, because they are grammatically acceptable.

Analysed corpora contain not only the tags of each of the words but also a syntactic analysis of each extract.

The first approach is to perform syntactic analysis first then have a second pass convert the syntactic tree to a semantic representation.

This model allowed only semantic analysis , output from the syntactic analysis and feedback to the lexical and syntactic analysis was forbidden.

category

There is a strong relationship between syntactic category and coverage.

An alternative technique is to use syntactic categories rather than individual words as the states in the model.

By using syntactic categories there is no limit on the size of the lexicon used.

Since there are substantially fewer syntactic categories than words in the language, the number of states in the model is reduced.

However, the descent into generality applies to all words, and is not confined to any one syntactic category .

Each lexical item was also tagged with a syntactic category . 4.5.1.2.

The strong relationship between syntactic category and coverage exists only at the first level of information.

Similarly, a graph of syntactic categories will eliminate some of the possible word sequences.

form

In normal spoken language there are often clear pragmatic constraints on the choice of particular syntactic forms .

The test sets out to examine the child's command of a range of syntactic forms in terms of both comprehension and production.

But Bolinger also believes that there is a correlation with syntax, or at least with the facts of surface syntactic form .

The second reason for Bock's claim about relations between syntactic form and lexical accessibility in production is an empirical one.

information

This includes the syntactic information and the root index for the word.

Eye movement studies have also been used to show that humans employ syntactic information when reading.

The representation of syntactic information in the lexicon is inextricably linked with the grammar being used.

When syntactic information is not needed for further processing, it may be cleared from the short-term store.

A small set of rules are used to derive the syntactic information for the word.

The run-time application of syntactic information uses the transition matrices and the lexicon to rank the words in the lattice.

This thesis examines the use of syntactic information for assisting in the text recognition process.

The morphological system can require a long time to obtain the syntactic information for a word.

processing

For this application syntactic processing is required to determine exactly where in the output to correctly specify prosody.

Case 2b - where none of the candidate words seem to fit with the syntactic processing of the sentence.

Generative linguistics has been the dominant approach to syntactic processing of language since the late 1950's.

structure

Failure to appreciate the functions of specific syntactic structures in signalling given and new information can result in unnecessary shifts in translation.

This sentence has roughly the syntactic structure shown in tree 6. 4.

The syntactic structure of a language imposes certain restrictions on the way messages may be organized in that language.

The likelihood is that such spare syntactic structures appear very infrequently as independent forms in actual use.

Hence the parser has only to decide on the syntactic structure that can be made from combining these different parts of speech.

Basic information about syntactic structure can not be derived from experimentation in the absence of prior knowledge derived from observational methods.

Apart from syntactic structure , punctuation can also be used as a device for signalling information structure in written language.

Is it to do with the syntactic structure or to the way in which this structure is lexically manifested?

variation

Lavandera has pointed out that much work on syntactic variation tends to focus on syntactic rather than social constraints.

We focus in chapter 7 on some special problems associated with analysing syntactic variation .

The research should also indicate specific geographical regions where in-depth analyses of syntactic variation could most usefully be carried out.

However, when it comes to analysing higher-level syntactic variation , the scope of conditioning factors is greatly increased.

EXAMPLES FROM OTHER ENTRIES

The two sentences have the same syntactic structure.

EXAMPLES FROM CORPUS

I started talking to Suzette about some syntactic maneuvers that would enable her to avoid repetition.

Lavandera has pointed out that much work on syntactic variation tends to focus on syntactic rather than social constraints.

The syntactic analysis revolves mainly around the study of adverbial and participial structures in the narrative.

The syntactic and semantic information about each of these words is then made available to the relevant processors.

The relationship between syntactic and semantic processing has been a central concern of psycholinguistics for the last two decades.

The run-time application of syntactic information uses the transition matrices and the lexicon to rank the words in the lattice.

We focus in chapter 7 on some special problems associated with analysing syntactic variation.

When syntactic information is not needed for further processing, it may be cleared from the short-term store.
