Title Searching For Grammar Right
Venue Workshop On Scalable Natural Language Understanding
Year 2006

This paper describes our ongoing work in and thoughts on developing a grammar learning system based on a construction grammar formalism. Necessary modules are presented and first results and chal- lenges in formalizing the grammar are shown up. Furthermore, we point out the major reasons why we chose construction grammar as the most fitting formalism for our purposes. Then our approach and ideas of learning new linguistic phenom- ena, ranging from holophrastic construc- tions to compositional ones, is presented.
