Resolving Attachment and Clause Boundary Ambiguities for Simplifying Relative Clause Constructs

Research output: Contribution to conferenceUnpublished paperpeer-review


There are two important disambiguation problems to solve when dis-embedding
relative clauses for simplifying text finding the noun phrase the clause refers
to and identifying the clause boundary. We argue that we can make these disambiguation decisions more reliably by using local context than by using general
purpose tools like wide-coverage statistical parsers.
