Interpreting Japanese Dependency Structure
This paper details a method of providing interpretations for kakari-uke dependency structures between bunsetsu (phrasal units) for utterances of Japanese. The technique employs a definition of evaluation against a structured assignment to generate meaning representations. An implementation is described which has led to a robust and efficient system for processing unrestricted texts of Japanese. In addition the paper offers a theory for grammatical/valid bunsetsu dependencies in terms of the class of kakari-uke structures combined with case frame information that successfully support evaluation.
