Syntactical parsing is the process of performing syntactical analysis on a string of words, phrase or a sentence according to certain rules of grammar. Syntactical parsing discovers structure in the text and is used to determine if a text conforms to an expected format. It involves breaking of text into different elements and identifying
syntactical relationship between different elements.
The basic idea behind syntactical analysis is to create a syntactic structure or a
parse tree from a sentence in a given natural language text to determine how a sentence is broken down into phrases, how the phrases are broken down into sub-phrases, and all the way down to the actual structure of the words used. In order to parse natural language text two basic grammars are used:- the constituency and
dependency grammars.
