Title: Syntactic Parsing of Turkish
Advisor: Tunga Güngör
Type: MS
Year: All
Status: Offered

Literature survey on grammars and parsing will be done. The characteristics of Turkish language and structure of sentences will be analyzed. A comprehensive grammar for Turkish will be built. An important property of the grammar formalism is that it includes grammatical sentences and excludes ungrammatical sentences.

For syntactic parsing, a sophisticated morphological analyzer or POS tagger is necessary. One of available such components will be used and it will be improved if necessary.

The performance of the parser will be analyzed in detail. Turkish WordNet may be used for this purpose.

Resources required: Turkish morphological analyzer/POS tagger
