GramLab: Multilingual Treebank-Based Deep LFG Grammars for Parsing, Generation and Machine Translation

Welcome to the website of the GramLab Research Group in the National Centre for Language Technology (NCLT) and the Centre for Next Generation Localisation (CNGL). We use treebanks to automatically acquire deep Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG) resources for wide-coverage, robust, statistical, multi-lingual parsing and generation. To date, we have required resources for English, Chinese, Arabic, Japanese, German, French, and Spanish. Our research includes:
  • Treebank-Based LFG Grammar and Lexicon Acquisition
  • Parsing
  • Generation/Surface Realisation
  • Machine Translation Evaluation
We also use hand-crafted ParGram LFG grammars in some of our research on Machine Translation and Grammatical Error Detection.

Thanks for accessing the GramLab site!
