I plan to work with dependency parsing, as an intermediate step in a text understanding problem. I'm also still trying to understand the terminology and methods. Any pointers (or providers) of tools (algorithms, python code, toy-this or that) so that I can implement a parser for purposes of learning about the mechanics of dependency parsing?
I understand that implementing a real parser is a major task. I'm hopeful for just enough information to code a 'toy', to learn more. Yes, I'm hoping I could insert some intermediate "print" statements to dump the state of the parser.
Really simple sentences like "Farmers grow wheat" to start with, then adding a few additional bits "Farmers grow wheat in Ohio", and "Farmers grow wheat in Ohio with water" (which has a few issues to be resolved for understanding).
