VnDP: A Vietnamese dependency parsing toolkit

Copyright  2014-2018 by Dat Quoc Nguyen and Dai Quoc Nguyen

VnDP is a Vietnamese dependency parsing toolkit which integrates a pre-trained dependency parsing model (MSTparser) [M06] and a pre-trained POS tagging model (RDRPOSTagger) [N14] for Vietnamese. The pre-trained parsing model was trained on our Vietnamese dependency treebank VnDT consisting of 10,200 sentences.

The evaluation of the VnDP toolkit and the construction of the VnDT treebank are detailed in our paper:

In Proceedings of 19th International Conference on Application of Natural Language to Information Systems, NLDB'14, Springer LNCS, pp. 196-207, 2014.

Please cite our NLDB'14 paper in any publication reporting on results obtained with the help of the VnDP toolkit or the VnDT treebank.

NOTE: You might want to try our new toolkit VnCoreNLP which produces significantly better parsing results than VnDP on the VnDT treebank.
