Abstract

In this work we focus on a particular linguistic phenomenon, ellipsis, and explore the latest parsers in order to learn about parsing accuracy and typical errors from the perspective of elliptical constructions. For this purpose we collected and processed outputs of several state-of-the art parsers that took part in the CoNLL 2017 Shared Task. We extended the official shared task evaluation software to obtain focused evaluation of elliptical constructions. Since the studied structures are comparatively rare, and consequently there is not enough data for experimentation, we further describe the creation of a new resource, a semi-artificially constructed treebank of ellipsis.
