DM dependency relation representation


#1

I recently read the Who Did What to Whom? A Contrastive Study of Syntacto-Semantic Dependencies paper* [link], and was wondering how to get DM (or another CoNLL-like format) output from the ERG. I can get MRS and EDS output using the redwoods script in the LOGON tree like so:

./redwoods --binary --erg --default --composite --target /tmp \
           --export mrs,eds --active all \
           erg/1214/input/16-05-23/pet

but redwoods doesn’t seem to support the DM format, nor do I see it in the [incr tsdb()] documentation. I’m pretty new to this HPSG world, so I’d appreciate a few pointers! thank you!

* the paper says the conversion software would be made available, but the link it provides doesn’t seem to exist; does anyone know where to find it??

Hi @ebender, thank you. Bruno (@odanoburu) works with me. We wrote to the sdp-organizers@delph-in.net email listed in the contact page of the website.

I found a script and PDF in the folder logon/uio/dtm, it may be relevant. Actually, the file converter.pdf contains some description about the format http://moin.delph-in.net/ErgProcessing/SampleExport. This format is not precisely defined in any page of the wiki, right? Another interesting file is the logon/lingo/lkb/src/tsdb/lisp/sdp.lisp, it has a comment transient pseudo-export for DM conversion ??

In the erg/etc/ I found a file named dm.cfg but I don’t have any idea what tool or script uses this file. Maybe @Dan can help?! :wink:
