Title How To Parse Gaps In Spoken Utterances
Venue Annual Meeting of The European Chapter of The Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference

We describe GLP, a chart parser that will be used as a SYNTAX module of the Erlangen Speech Understanding System. GLP realizes an agenda-based multiprocessing scheme, which allows easily to apply vari- ous parsing strategies in a transparent way. We discuss which features have been incorporated into the parser in order to process speech data, in particular the abi- lity to perform direction independent is- land parsing, to handle gaps in the utter- ance and its hypothesis scoring scheme. I. GLP, A GENERAL LINGUISTIC PROCESSOR GLP (Goerz 1981, 1982a,b) is a multi- strategy chart-parser, which has special features for the analysis of fragmentary and defective input data as it is the case with speech. GLP, a descendant of a version of GSP by M. Kay (1975), has been implemen- ted in InterLISP....
