About the book

The Parsing System "Palavras" is the result of a dissertation project carried out at the University of Aarhus between 1994 and 1999, and describes a Progressive Level Parser ('Palavras') and a Dependency Grammar for Portuguese, both based on the Constraint Grammar paradigm and embedded in extensive corpus research.

The text provides a thorough discussion of relevant issues in general and computational linguistics, while at the same time offering a fresh and empirically motivated view on Portuguese grammar. Morphology, syntax and semantics are treated, as well as a number of practical applications, covering corpus annotation, grammar teaching and machine translation.

All chapters are richly embroidered with examples, graphics and statistics, and a gentle progression of topics makes the book accesible to a wide range of linguistically interested readers.
