Building Structure

A parse chain linking the tokens found in the text is first constructed out of PARSE and ANDPARSE operators. The PARSE operators produce symbols, and these symbols are recognised by STRUCTURE operators, resulting in new structure being built on top of the symbols, resulting in new symbols.

As an example, two prepositional phrases are recognised.

buildingstructure1.wmf (98734 bytes)

One of the prepositional phrases is moved to be a modifier.

buildingstructure2.wmf (92618 bytes)

The second prepositional phrase is moved, allowing the structure of the sentence to be seen.

buildingstructure4.wmf (83458 bytes)
