RAND CORP SANTA MONICA CA
Pagination or Media Count:
The books and papers listed in the bibliography have in common a concern with the notion that syntax is best described by specifying word-to-word connections, generally called dependencies, rather than by segmentations of sentences. Some of the works listed contribute to the development of a formal dependency theory in linguistics. Others apply the growing theory to the description of natural languages and to the design of computer systems for machine translation, information retrieval, and other purposes. A few of the papers cited criticize and reject the dependency notion.
