Getting Started with OpenCCG

OpenCCG is a Java library which can handle both parsing and generation. I’ve mostly used it for surface realization, converting fairly syntactic meaning representations into a natural language text, but you can use it for parsing or for generation from higher-level semantic representations if you’d like. This tutorial is intended to help you: Start exploring OpenCCG with the tccg utility. If you haven’t installed OpenCCG yet, see the first post on Installing OpenCCG first.

Installing OpenCCG

Installing OpenCCG can seem intimidating, but it’s not so bad, really. Here I’ve tried to reduce the README to the necessary details while providing a little bit of extra explanation when it seemed helpful.

My website was stagnant. I love Markdown. This looks like a good way to motivate myself to update regularly. And I even found a responsive theme!
