We analyze estimation methods for Data- Oriented Parsing, as well as the theoret- ical criteria used to evaluate them. We show that all current estimation methods areinconsistent inthe “weight-distribution test”, and argue that these results force us to rethink both the methods proposed and the criteria used.
