Syntactic Analysis of Natural Languages

The project has considered syntactic analysis of natural languages, with a focus on semi-supervised approaches that require very limited amounts of training data. One focus of the project has been on highly efficient methods for the learning of lexical representations from unlabeled data; these representations can then be used in various natural language processing problems. We have derived a new algorithm for word clustering that is significantly more efficient than previous approaches, and has strong theoretical guarantees.
