Abstract : A parallel implementation of a chart parser is described for a shared memory multiprocessor. The speed ups obtained with this parser have been measured for a number of small natural language grammars. For the largest of these, part of an operational question answering system, the parser ran 5 to 7 times faster than the serial version.
