Dear all,

I am pleased to announce that ParZu, the Zurich Dependency Parserfor German (formerly known as Pro3GresDe), has been releasedunder a free software license (GPL).

ParZu uses a hybrid architecture, combining a hand-written grammarand statistical information. It offers high-quality, robust dependencyparsing for German (try it yourself: http://www.cl.uzh.ch/kitt/parzu/ ), buthas so far suffered from limited deployability due to licensing issues.We have now stripped the parser of all proprietary dependencies.

ParZu repository: http://github.com/rsennrich/parzu

ParZu has been developed at the Institute of Computational Linguisticsof the University of Zurich and is described in:

Rico Sennrich, Gerold Schneider, Martin Volk and Martin Warin (2009): A New Hybrid Dependency Parser for German. In: Proceedings ofGSCL Conference, Potsdam.

Best wishes,Rico
