1. Describe an autonomous parser

  • Syntax and semantics are both used to construct the syntactic representation in one go
  • The first stage is purely autonomous, the second is semantic
  • Initial stages of parsing ONLY use syntax to construct representations
  • Other sources and modalities of information can influence the parser at an early stage

  • A purely syntactic representation is first constructed, then checked against semantic info
  • All possible syntactic representations are generated and semantics used to choose the most appropriate
  • Semantic info guides the parser, ONLY semantically plausible representations generated
