The file fremalt-1.7.mco contains a single malt configuration for parsing French text with MaltParser, version 1.7. The parsing model has been trained on a dependency version of the French Treebank (Candito et al., 2010). The parser presupposes that the input is in CoNLL format and tagged with the part-of-speech tags of the MElt tagger (Denis and Sagôt, 2009) as shown in the example below.
Note: This model can be used for research purposes provided that you have a license for the French Treebank. If you want to use it for commercial applications, please contact the license holder for the treebank to find out which conditions apply.
Download fremalt-1.7.mco into your working directory and execute the following command:
prompt> $ java -Xmx1024m -jar maltparser-1.7.jar -c fremalt-1.7 -i infile.conll -o outfile.conll -m parse
outfile.conll should be replaced by the names of your input and output files.
For more information, see the MaltParser user guide.
Here is an example of an input sentence:
1 Nous _ CL CLS _ 2 prions _ V V _ 3 les _ D DET _ 4 cinéastes _ N NC _ 5 et _ C CC _ 6 tous _ A ADJ _ 7 nos _ D DET _ 8 lecteurs _ N NC _ 9 de _ P P _ 10 bien _ ADV ADV _ 11 vouloir _ V VINF _ 12 nous _ CL CLS _ 13 en _ CL CLO _ 14 excuser _ V VINF _ 15 . _ PONCT PONCT _
Note that the columns are tab-separated and that the part-of-speech tags in column 4 are a coarse-grained variant of the full part-of-speech tags in column 5.
