|Title:||K-best combination of syntactic parsers||Authors:||Zhang, H.
|Issue Date:||2009||Citation:||Zhang, H.,Zhang, M.,Tan, C.L.,Li, H. (2009). K-best combination of syntactic parsers. EMNLP 2009 - Proceedings of the 2009 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing: A Meeting of SIGDAT, a Special Interest Group of ACL, Held in Conjunction with ACL-IJCNLP 2009 : 1552-1560. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||In this paper, we propose a linear model-based general framework to combine k-best parse outputs from multiple parsers. The proposed framework leverages on the strengths of previous system combination and re-ranking techniques in parsing by integrating them into a linear model. As a result, it is able to fully utilize both the logarithm of the probability of each k-best parse tree from each individual parser and any additional useful features. For feature weight tuning, we compare the simulated-annealing algorithm and the perceptron algorithm. Our experiments are carried out on both the Chinese and English Penn Treebank syntactic parsing task by combining two stateof-the-art parsing models, a head-driven lexicalized model and a latent-annotation-based un-lexicalized model. Experimental results show that our F-Scores of 85.45 on Chinese and 92.62 on English outperform the previously best-reported systems by 1.21 and 0.52, respectively. © 2009 ACL and AFNLP.||Source Title:||EMNLP 2009 - Proceedings of the 2009 Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing: A Meeting of SIGDAT, a Special Interest Group of ACL, Held in Conjunction with ACL-IJCNLP 2009||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/40820|
