A linguistic syntactic parsing task is a syntactic parsing task that requires the creation of a linguistic syntactic structure that represents a linguistic expression.




    • A parser is an algorithm (or a program that implements that algorithm) that takes a grammar, a and a string of words, decides whether the string of words can be derived from the grammar and lexicon (i.e. is a sentence with respect to the grammar and lexicon.

      If so, it produces as output some kind of representation of the way (or ways) in which the sentence can be derived from the grammar and lexicon. A common way of doing this is to output (a) parse tree(s).
