Analyzing English Noun Groups for Their Conceptual Content.
Gershman, Anatole V.
An expectation based system, NGP, for parsing English noun groups into the Conceptual Dependency representation is described. The system is a part of English Language Interpreter (ELI) which is used as the front end to several natural language understanding systems and is capable of handling a wide range of sentences of considerable complexity. NGP processes the input from left to right, one word at a time, using linguistic and world knowledge to find the meaning of a noun group. Dictionary entries for individual words contain much of the program's knowledge. In addition, a limited ability for the handling of slightly incorrect sentences and unknown words is incorporated.
