Título: "Desiging and improving FRMG, a wide coverage French meta-grammar"
I will present how the notion of metagrammar has been used to develop a large Tree-Adjoining Grammar (TAG) for French and focus on the description of some syntactic phenomena. The parser derived from the grammar has been tried on larger and larger corpora, and the second part of the talk will survey the long term effort that is needed to improve coverage, efficiency and accuracy. In particular, I will focus on recent experiments done to significantly improve the accuracy using machine learning techniques and existing syntactic annotations.
