Abstract : Immediate-constituent analysis and dependency analysis (two theories of syntactic description) are based, respectively, on the topologies of grouping and of trees. A correspondence between structures of the two types is defined, and the two topologies are compared, mainly in terms of their empirical applications. (Author)
