MaltParser 0.4 was used in the multi-lingual track of the CoNLL 2007 Shared Task in the systems that obtained the first and fifth best overall scores. The fifth best system was a single-parser system, called Single Malt, while the top scoring system was an ensemble system, called Blended, incorporating six incarnations of MaltParser.
The systems are described in Hall et al. (2007). More information is available at:
MaltParser 0.4 was used in the CoNLL-X Shared Task on multi-lingual dependency parsing in the system that obtained the second best overall score, not significantly worse than the best score, and that achieved top results for nine languages out of thirteen (with results significantly better than any other system for Japanese, Swedish and Turkish). In this system, MaltParser was combined with pseudo-projective parsing, which requires preprocessing of training data and post-processing of parser output (Nivre and Nilsson 2005). The complete system is described in Nivre et al. (2006). More information is available at:
