Francisco Cortés Rodríguez y Ricardo Mairal-Usón, 2016: "Building an RRG computational grammar",
Onomázein 34, 86-117.
Several grammatical models have shown a
growing interest for the development of the conditions
necessary to satisfy the so-called criterion of
computational adequacy. Within Role and Reference
Grammar (RRG [Van Valin & LaPolla, 1997; Van Valin,
2005; Pavey, 2010]), there have been some works
seeking to implement the model in different computational
environments (Diedrichsen, 2011, 2013;
Guest, 2009; Nolan & Periñán-Pascual, 2014; Salem
et al., 2008). In this scenario, the works of Van Valin & Mairal (2014), Periñán-Pascual (2013) and Periñán-Pascual & Arcas (2014) have set up the guidelines to
devise a parsing system called ARTEMIS (Automatically
Representing TExt Meaning via an Interlingua-Based System) for the computational treatment of
the syntax and semantics of sentences.
The goal of this paper is to contribute to the
development of ARTEMIS focusing specifically on
the design of the rules necessary for the effective
computational parsing of unmarked simple clauses
following the format of the Layered Structure
of the Clause as described in RRG. Such rules should
yield, as a result for every sentence, a parsed tree following
the format of grammatical analyses in RRG.
