Title Selective Magic HPSG Parsing
Venue Annual Meeting of The European Chapter of The Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference

We propose a parser for constraint- logic grammars implementing HPSG that combines the advantages of dy- namic bottom-up and advanced top- down control. The parser allows the user to apply magic compilation to spe- cific constraints in a grammar which as a result can be processed dynamically in a bottom-up and goal-directed fash- ion. State of the art top-down process- ing techniques are used to deal with the remaining constraints. We discuss vari- ous aspects concerning the implementa- tion of the parser as part of a grammar development system.
