22 Proposal Feature forest model [Miyao and Tsujii, 2002]

23 Proposal Feature forest model [Miyao and Tsujii, 2002] Conjunctive node Disjunctive node Features Exponentially many trees are packed Features are assigned to each conjunctive node

24 Feature forest model Feature forest models can be efficiently estimated without exponential explosion [Miyao and Tsujii, 2002]

25 Feature forest model Feature forest models can be efficiently estimated without exponential explosion [Miyao and Tsujii, 2002] When unpacking the forest, the model is equivalent to maximum entropy models [Berger et al., 1996]

28 Application to parsing Applying a feature forest model to disambiguation of argument structures How to represent exponential ambiguities of argument structures with a feature forest? –Argument structures are not trees, but DAGs (including reentrant structures)

41 Experiments Features: the combinations of –Surface strings/POS –Labels of dependencies (ARG1, ARG2, …) –Labels of lexical entries (head noun, transitive, …) –Distance Estimation algorithm: Limited-memory BFGS algorithm [Nocedal, 1980] with MAP estimation [Chen & Rosenfeld, 1999]
