A Survey of Syntactic-Semantic Parsing Based on Constituent and Dependency Structures [article]

Meishan Zhang
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Besides, we also review the closely-related topics such as cross-domain, cross-lingual and joint parsing models, parser application as well as corpus development of parsing in the article.  ...  Syntactic and semantic parsing has been investigated for decades, which is one primary topic in the natural language processing community. This article aims for a brief survey on this topic.  ...  There are several classical treebanks such as the Penn Treebanks of English and Chinese languages, which greatly promote the development of the parsing community.  ...
