Proceedings of the Seventh International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC'10)

We describe work in progress on the development of a full syntactic parser for Romanian. This work is part of a larger project of multilingual extension of the Fips parser (Wehrli, 2007), already available for French, English, German, Spanish, Italian, and Greek, to four new languages (Romanian, Romansh, Russian and Japanese). The Romanian version was built by starting with the Fips generic parsing architecture for the Romance languages and customising the grammatical component, in close relation to the development of the lexical component. We describe this process and report on preliminary results obtained for journalistic texts.
