ELMoLex: Connecting ELMo and Lexicon features for Dependency Parsing

Abstract : In this paper, we present the details of the neural dependency parser and the neu-ral tagger submitted by our team 'ParisNLP' to the CoNLL 2018 Shared Task on parsing from raw text to Universal Dependencies. We augment the deep Biaffine (BiAF) parser (Dozat and Manning, 2016) with novel features to perform competitively: we utilize an indomain version of ELMo features (Peters et al., 2018) which provide context-dependent word representations; we utilize disambiguated, embedded, morphosyntactic features from lexicons (Sagot, 2018), which complements the existing feature set. Henceforth , we call our system 'ELMoLex'. In addition to incorporating character embed-dings, ELMoLex leverage pre-trained word vectors, ELMo and morphosyntactic features (whenever available) to correctly handle rare or unknown words which are prevalent in languages with complex morphology. ELMoLex 1 ranked 11th by Labeled Attachment Score metric (70.64%), Morphology-aware LAS metric (55.74%) and ranked 9th by Bilexical dependency metric (60.70%). In an extrinsic evaluation setup, ELMoLex ranked 7 th for Event Extraction, Negation Resolution tasks and 11th for Opinion Analysis task by F1 score.
