An LFG Chinese grammar for machine use


This paper describes the Chinese grammar developed at PARC, including its three basic components: the tokenizer and tagger, lexicon and syntactic rules. Some of the challenges and issues that we have encountered in the process of development are discussed. In addition, we present our methods of handling these issues. We also illustrate how we evaluate our grammar, providing the evaluation results and some error analyses.
