penntreebank-megaparsec :: Megaparsec parsers for trees in the Penn Treebank format

Travis CI build :: master

This Haskell package provides parsers for syntactic trees annotated in the Penn Treebank format, powered by Megaparsec.

It supports vertical composition of custom label parsers with tree parsers, which means you can customize your label parsers and use these parsers to perform parsing of labels at the same time as that of trees. For the following example of categorial grammar trees,

(A/B (B He)
     (B\<A/B> thinks))

the result of tree parsing is:

Node "A/B" [
    Node "B" [
        Node "He" []
    Node "B\<A/B>" [
        Node "thinks" []

which you can make followed by a secondary parsing of labels (= categories):

Node (CatRight (Atom B) (Atom A)) [
    Node (Atom B) [
        Node (Lex "He") []
    Node (CatLeft (Atom B) (CatRight (Atom B) (Atom A))) [
        Node (Lex "thinks") []
