Improving and extending automatically parsed treebanks of Dutch

In this presentation, we will describe the efforts (some in vein) to improve and extend the available automatically parsed Dutch treebanks. An experiment is described in which word embeddings are integrated in the parser to improve parse disambiguation.

The presentation will further report on our progress in providing an automatically parsed version of the NLCOW corpus of over 4 billion words. We show that user-generated content leads to accuracy reduction, and we suggest that the usual treebanking approach of annotating "what is said" may need to be replaced by annotating "what is meant".

Parsing Morphologically Rich Languages: Where Do We Stand?

Parsing for morphologically rich languages has received much attention in the last 5 years, as documented by the SPMRL workshop, a special issue in Computational Linguistics, and the two shared task at SPMRL 2013 and 2014. In this talk, I will attempt to provide an overview of the problems that we encounter in parsing such languages. I will discuss our findings so far as well as important directions for future work.
