Description: Carnegie Mellon University's link grammar parser for English
In Selator, D. and Temperly, D. "Parsing English with a Link Grammar"
(1991), the authors defined a new formal grammatical system called a
"link grammar". A sequence of words is in the language of a link
grammar if there is a way to draw "links" between words in such a way
that the local requirements of each word are satisfied, the links do
not cross, and the words form a connected graph. The authors encoded
English grammar into such a system, and wrote this program to parse
English using this grammar.
link-grammar can be used for linguistic parsing for information
retrieval or extraction from natural language documents. It can also be
used as a grammar checker.
