Right Node Raising in Parsing and Generation

Jonas Kuhn, Christian Rohrer and Sina Zarrieß


Link to pdf of paper

We discuss a grammar engineering account of non-constituent coordination in the clausal syntax of German as it occurs in real corpus data, generalizing the approach of Forst and Rohrer (2009) to right node raising cases not captured so far. We compare our account to the unimplemented meta-grammatical technique by Maxwell and Manning (1996) and point out that many of their ideas can be captured using only the standard LFG formalism and making minimal adjustments to an existing large-scale grammar. We point out that information-structural constraints on right node raising can be simulated in f-structures and show that they are well-behaved in a generation scenario.
