Experimental Settings: ACL 2010

The experiments reported in the ACL paper A Transition-Based Parser for 2-Planar Dependency Structures were performed using MaltParser (version 1.3.2). The table below shows the exact settings used for the three parsers referred to as 2-planar, Malt P and Malt PP, respectively. Links are provided to the XML files specifying the feature models for each combination of parser and language. Default settings were used for all MaltParser parameters that are not explicitly mentioned. (See the MaltParser documentation for more information about flags and parameters.)
