ChunkPro groups words into flat (i.e. unnested) syntactic constituents (e.g. noun phrases, verb phrases, etc.), providing both a shallow syntactic analysis of a text and an intermediate step toward full parsing.
Algorithm: ChunkPro uses Yamcha for feature extraction and SVM as a classification algorithm.
