Link grammar parser

Saturday 27 August 2005This is almost 18 years old. Be careful.

Link Grammar Parser seems like a really cool library: it parses English sentences, and seems to be quite capable. Looking at the sample parsed sentences, it can distinguish good and bad sentences that have completely similar structure (asterisk means it doesn’t parse):

The big question on everybody’s mind is who killed OJ.

*The big mind on everybody’s question is who killed OJ.

Millions attended.

*5 millions attended.

Millions of people attended.

I don’t have a need for parsing English like this, but reading about a tool like this makes me want to try it out.

Small world: One of the authors of the parser is Daniel Sleator, whose brother is William Sleator, who has written many kid’s books, including an awesome one I read in school, House of Stairs.



I want to write a link grammar parser for persian language, I need a pseudo code of Link Grammar. I would appreciate you if help me in this case.
