Title Efficient Parsing For French
Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1989

Parsing with categorial grammars often leads to problems such as proliferating lexical ambiguity, spu- rious parses and overgeneration. This paper presents a parser for French developed on an unification based categorial grammar (FG) which avoids these pro- blem s. This parser is a bottom-up c hart parser augmen- ted with a heuristic eliminating spurious parses. The unicity and completeness of parsing are proved.
