The Link Grammar Parser is a syntactic parser of English, based on link grammar, an original theory of English syntax. The system assigns to a sentence a syntactic structure, which consists of a set of labeled links connecting pairs of words. The parser also produces a "constituent" representation of a sentence (showing noun phrases, verb phrases, etc.). The parser has a dictionary of about 60000 word forms. It covers a range of syntactic constructions, including many rare and idiomatic ones. The parser skips over the portions of the sentence that it cannot understand, and assigns some structure to the rest of the sentence. It can handle unknown vocabulary, and makes intelligent guesses from context and spelling about the syntactic categories of unknown words. It understands capitalization, numerical expressions, and various punctuation symbols.
