Finding Parse Errors in the Midst of Parse Errors

Markus Dickinson and Amber Smith

Proceedings of the 13th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT13).

We consider a simple method for dependency parse error detection and develop representations which account for parse errors occurring in the context of other parse errors. The core insight is to combine both very detailed representations with more relaxed representations, i.e., ones which allow for errors. We show that for situations with little annotated data to begin with, error detection precision can be greatly increased.
