A GB-Related Parser for Norwegian

Series:

Torbjorn Nordgard

The book describes a formalised and implemented parser for Norwegian which is related to Government and Binding Theory (GB theory). Particular attention is paid to empirical phenomena which have been problematic for many parsing systems for natural language (e.g. parasitic gaps, crossing dependencies, extractions from relative clauses). The relation between the GB model and theoretical constructs from GB on the one hand and the processing system (the parser) on the other is another issue discussed at length in the book.
