Non-Constituent Coordination: Theory and Practice
9503014 | cmp-lg
Despite the large amount of theoretical work done on non-constituent coordination during the last two decades, many computational systems still treat coordination using adapted parsing strategies, in a similar fashion to the SYSCONJ system developed for ATNs. This paper reviews the theoretical literature, and shows why many of the theoretical accounts actually have worse coverage than accounts based on processing. Finally, it shows how processing accounts can be described formally and declaratively in terms of Dynamic Grammars.
