Generating Constituent Order in German Clauses
We investigate the factors which determine constituent order in German clauses and propose an algorithm which performs the task in two steps: First, the best candidate for the initial sentence position is chosen. Then, the order for the remaining constituents is determined. The first task is more difficult than the second one because of properties of the German sentence-initial position. Experiments show a significant improvement over competing approaches. Our algorithm is also more efficient than these.
