Abstract

The last few years have seen a surge in the
number of accurate, fast, publicly available
dependency parsers. At the same
time, the use of dependency parsing in
NLP applications has increased. It can be
difficult for a non-expert to select a good
“off-the-shelf” parser. We present a comparative
analysis of ten leading statistical
dependency parsers on a multi-genre corpus
of English. For our analysis, we developed
a new web-based tool that gives
a convenient way of comparing dependency
parser outputs. Our analysis will
help practitioners choose a parser to optimize
their desired speed/accuracy tradeoff,
and our tool will help practitioners examine
and compare parser output.
