dc.description.abstract By utilizing structure sharing among its parse trees, a GB parser can increase its efficiency dramatically. Using a GB parser which has as its phrase structure recovery component an implementation of Tomita's algorithm (as described in [Tom86]), we investigate how a GB parser can preserve the structure sharing output by Tomita's algorithm. In this report, we discuss the implications of using Tomita's algorithm in GB parsing, and we give some details of the structuresharing parser currently under construction. We also discuss a method of parallelizing a GB parser, and relate it to the existing literature on parallel GB parsing. Our approach to preserving sharing within a shared-packed forest is applicable not only to GB parsing, but anytime we want to preserve structure sharing in a parse forest in the presence of features. en_US
