Blurb/Shorttext:
This book presents a new model of human language, human parsing, and human language learning. It provides a detailed formal account of a wide range of linguistic phenomena, including discontinuous word order, secondary dependencies, parasitic gaps, elliptic coordinations, punctuation, and important aspects of morphology and discourse. The book argues for a probabilistic model of language, and proposes a psycholinguistically motivated non-projective dependency parsing algorithm that can take advantage of the probabilistic model. The book falls within the tradition of dependency grammar, but differs from dependency theories such as Word Grammar, Functional Generative Description, and Meaning Text Theory by building on a purely probabilistic conception of human language, and by providing a unified account of computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, and linguistics. The theory has been used as the basis for the 100,000 word Danish Dependency Treebank and the Copenhagen Dependency Treebank for Danish-English. The book is targeted towards researchers and students working within computational linguistics, psycholinguistics, and linguistics.
