Abstract:
Sentences are far more ambiguous than one might have though. these may be hundreds, perhaps thousands of syntactic parse trees for certain very natural sentences of English. This fact has been a major problem confronting natural language processing because it indicates that it may require a long time to construct a list of all the parse trees, and furthermore, it isn't clear what to do with the list once it has been constructed.
