Quick note to say that Teresa Lynn at DCU has been working on a project based on dependency treebanks for Irish. This is relevant to this blog because Irish Gaelic is very closely related to Scottish Gaelic and much of the grammar is similar, and there has also been work in the past (Clark and Curran 2007, Table 2, for example) on deriving dependency structures from CCG lexical structures.
Here are two papers I’ve had a quick look at:
- Irish Treebanking and Parsing: A Preliminary Evaluation (from LREC in 2012)
- Working with a small dataset – semi-supervised dependency parsing for Irish (from SPMRL this year; I hadn’t heard of this meeting but it’s in the ACL Anthology)
