Parsing Head Internal and External Relative Clause Constructions in Korean
Korean displays various types of relative clauses including head internal and external relative clauses (HIRC and HERC). In particular, the treatment of HIRC has received less attention from computational perspectives even though it is frequently found in both text and spoken languages. This paper shows that a typed feature structure grammar of HPSG (together with the semantic representations of Minimal Recursion Semantics) offers us a computationally feasible and applicable way of deep-parsing both the HIRC and HERC in the language.
