New PDTB parser PDF Print E-mail

Ilija Ilievski, a new PhD student jointly supervised in WING and the NLP groups in NUS, has re-engineered the NUS Discourse Parser to make it simpler to install and execute out of the box. Please refer to his Github repository. It is equivalent in output to the original discourse parser, and he will soon release a report detailing the minor discrepancies between our earlier published results and this new, modular architecture. We recommend all groups using the Lin et al. discourse parser try to use this version instead.
