A Lexicalized Tree-Adjoining Grammar for Vietnamese

H. Phuong Le, T. M. Huyen Nguyen, Laurent Romary, Azim Roussanaly


Abstract
In this paper, we present the first sizable grammar built for Vietnamese using LTAG, developed over the past two years, named vnLTAG. This grammar aims at modelling written language and is general enough to be both application- and domain-independent. It can be used for the morpho-syntactic tagging and syntactic parsing of Vietnamese texts, as well as text generation. We then present a robust parsing scheme using vnLTAG and a parser for the grammar. We finish with an evaluation using a test suite.
