Running the experiments

Set up English data

sh "en-data /path/to/treebank"

That treebank directory should contain a folder combined containing files wsj_0000.mrg through wsj_2454.mrg

Run English experiments on sections 00-15

sh en-run16

Run English experiments on sections 00-07

sh en-run8

Run Italian experiments

The Italian data is already located in the data directory, so this experiment can be launched immediately.

sh it-run
