Title Parsing With Discontinuous Constituents
Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1985

By generalizing the notion of location of a constituent to allow discontinuous Ioctaions, one can describe the discontinuous consti- tuents of non-configurational languages. These discontinuous consti- tuents can be described by a variant of definite clause grammars, and these grammars can be used in conjunction with a proof pro- cedure to create a parser for non-configurational languages.
