  • It suggests that some NLP applications can benefit from having access to dependencies between words typed with grammatical relations because they provide information about predicate-argument structure which are not readily available from phrase structure parses.

This paper describes a system for extracting typed dependency parses of English sentences from phrase structure parses. In order to capture inherent relations occurring in corpus texts that can be critical in real-world applications, many NP relations are included in the set of grammatical relations used. We provide a comparison of our system with Minipar and the Link parser. The typed dependency extraction facility described here is integrated in the Stanford Parser, available for download.
