A link grammar for Turkish
Item Usage Stats
Syntactic parsing, or syntactic analysis, is the process of analyzing an input sequence in order to determine its grammatical structure, i.e. the formal relationships between the words of a sentence, with respect to a given grammar. In this thesis, we developed the grammar of Turkish language in the link grammar formalism. In the grammar, we used the output of a fully described morphological analyzer, which is very important for agglutinative languages like Turkish. The grammar that we developed is lexical such that we used the lexemes of only some function words and for the rest of the word classes we used the morphological feature structures. In addition, we preserved the some of the syntactic roles of the intermediate derived forms of words in our system.
