Parsing the Penn Chinese Treebank with Semantic Knowledge
Abstract. We build a class-based selection preference sub-model to incorporate external semantic knowledge from two Chinese electronic semantic dictionaries. This sub-model is combined with modifier-head generation sub-model. After being optimized on the held out data by the EM algorithm, our improved parser achieves 79.4% (F1 measure), as well as a 4.4% relative decrease in error rate on the Penn Chinese Treebank (CTB). Further analysis of performance improvement indicates that semantic knowledge is helpful for nominal compounds, coordination, and N V tagging disambiguation, as well as alleviating the sparseness of information available in treebank.
