Parse text using a pre-trained stochastic context free grammar


scfg_parse [options] [-grammar ifile] [-corpus ifile] [-brackets ] [-o ofile]

This parses given text with a given stochastic context free grammar. Note this program is not designed as an arbitrary parser for unrestricted English. It simply parses the input non-terminals with the given grammar. If you want to English (or other language) parses consider using the festival script scfg_parse which does proper tokenization and part of speech tagging, before passing it to a SCFG.
