Title A Stochastic Approach To Sentence Parsing
Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1984

A description will be given of a procedure to asslgn the most likely probabilitles to each of the rules of a given context-free grammar. The grammar devel- oped by S. Kuno at Harvard University was picked as the basis and was successfully augmented with rule probabilities. A brief exposition of the method with some preliminary results, whenused as a device for disamblguatingparsing English texts picked from natural corpus, will be given.
