Subject Highlights


A finite state approach to determining the syntactic roles of commas has already been established for the English language. Here we extend this approach to Dutch. We identify syntactic dissimilarities of comma usages between the English and Dutch languages and show how much effort is needed to extend this finite state approach to Dutch. Once adapted to the Dutch language, the system is tested across several Dutch sources and results are given.
