Persian Language Model for the Graph-Based MateParser: ParsPer

The language model ParsPer (Seraji, 2015) is developed using the graph-based MateParser (Bohnet, 2010), an open source statistical dependency parser in the NLP toolkit. ParsPer is created by training the graph-based MateParser on the entire Uppsala Persian Dependency Treebank (UPDT) with a selected configuration. For detailed description, see Chapter 6, pp. 147-172 in Seraji (2015). 


The tool is developed by Mojgan Seraji ( mojgan.seraji96@gmail.com ) and licensed under GNU General Public License. The tools is used for parsing Persian texts and can be downloaded below: 

Start using ParsPer

Before you start using the language model, you will first need to download anna-3.61.jar. Then you can run the ParsPer by typing the following at the command line prompt:
prompt> java -cp anna-3.61.jar is2.parser.Parser -model model_ParsPer -test input.conll -out output.conll
