RESTRICTION LANGUAGE FOR COMPUTER GRAMMARS OF NATURAL LANGUAGE.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper presents a programming language designed specifically for the compact and perspicuous statement of restrictions of a natural language grammar. It is based on ten years' experience parsing text sentences with the comprehensive English grammar of the N. Y. U. Linguistic String Project, and embodies in its syntax and routines the relations which were found to be useful and adequate for computerized natural language analysis. The language is used in the current implementation of the Linguistic String Parser.
