This page monitor the line of research initialized by Chen and Manning (2014) (although earlier attempt was made in a similar vein: Mayberry & Miikkulainen, 1999). The common traits shared among the researches are the use of primitive features projected into vector spaces (not only words but also dependency label, parts-of-speech, etc.) and hidden layer(s) as a means of automatically combining given primitive features.
Combined with other tasks
Trask et al. (2015) used combination of senses/POS tags and trained word sense disambiguation with dependency parsing.
TODO: Ammar et al. (2016)
One initial argument for neural dependency parsing was speed. For one, Chen & Manning (2014) said:
"Third, the use of many feature templates cause a less studied problem: in modern dependency parsers, most of the runtime is consumed not by the core parsing algorithm but in the feature extraction step (He et al., 2013). For instance, Bohnet (2010) reports that his baseline parser spends 99% of its time do- ing feature extraction, despite that being done in standard efficient ways."
However, later work (Rasooli & Tetreault, 2015) has demonstrated that one can extract two-word and even three-word features fast enough to enable a MaxEnt parser to run at the same or faster speed than a neural parser.
