Example-based parsing has already been proposed in literature. In particular, at- tempts are being made to develop tech- niques for language pairs where the source and target languages are different, e.g. Direct Projection Algorithm (Hwa et al. , 2005). This enables one to develop parsed corpus for target languages having fewer linguistic tools with the help of a resource- rich source language. The DPA algo- rithm works on the assumption of Di- rect Correspondence which simply means that the relation between two words of the source language sentence can be pro- jected directly between the correspond- ing words of the parallel target language sentence. However, we find that this as- sumption does not hold good all the time. This leads to wrong parsed structure of the target language sentenc...
