Mate tools is a toolkit of statistical NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) tools comprising a lemmatizer, part-of-speech tagger, morphological tagger, dependency parser, and semantic role labeler. It includes two different dependency parsers, a graph-based parser, and a joint tagger and transition-based parser.
Bohnets parser, which is distributed as ‘mate-tools’, supports many languages. We chose Danish and English for the CLARIN-DK platform. (Support of more languages would require too many server resources.)

What is a parser?
A parser is a compiler or interpreter component that breaks data into smaller elements for easy translation into another language. A parser takes input in the form of a sequence of tokens or program instructions and usually builds a data structure in the form of a parse tree or an abstract syntax tree.(Def.
