the literature: Realization with CCG

My "Alternative Syntactic Theories" class this semester was pretty interesting. I'd only spent so much time thinking about the difficulties that you face when trying to come up with a good formalism for describing the syntax of human languages. It's a big hairy problem! So this was a good exercise for me.

For my project for the class, I read a bunch of papers by the great Michael White about the work that he and his colleagues have been doing on realization (aka generating text) with OpenCCG.

If you're interested in CCG, text generation, or text generation with CCG...
- Here are my presentation slides
- and here's my writeup about it: html, pdf.
