I’ve been trying to find C&C tools and Boxer online and found this link in many places (http://svn.ask.it.usyd.edu.au/trac/candc) but the link does not work for me. Is there another place to find these tools?

I did see that you have the source code available here (https://github.com/valeriobasile/learningbyreading/tree/master/ext/candc), and I tried to install it (on OS X 10.12) but it gave me an error.

Also, are there other wide-coverage semantic parsers out there that would be good alternatives? Or is this considered the state-of-the-art semantic parser? I’m hoping that I will be able to use these tools for my research project involving translation of laws to formal representation.


The parser you linked to has been rewritten in Java and improved. The latest software can be downloaded from Stephen Clark's C&C tools page. The old C++ version can be downloaded from there too, which comes with Boxer.

As for state-of-the-art tools, I can't recommend anything, but SIGPARSE and SIGSEM are good starting points to find them.
