We intend to evaluate the syntactic plausibility of Syntactic Topic Model (STM). The STMis a non-parametric Bayesian model of parsed documents. The STM generates words thatare both thematically and syntactically constrained, which combines the semantic insightsof topic models with the syntactic information available from parse tress. The expertise thatwe wish to obtain from STM study include the understand the non-parametric Bayesianmodelling, techniques of approximate posterior inference of probabilistic topics models,and evaluation methodology. As all this knowledge is important for the full developmentof the student doctorate project research. (AU)
