Interaction Grammar (IG) is a grammatical formalism based on the notion of polarity. Polarities express the resource sensitivity of natural languages by modelling the distinction between saturated and unsaturated syntactic structures. Syntactic composition is represented as a chemical reaction guided by the saturation of polarities. It is expressed in a(More)
Mammals owe part of their evolutionary success to the harmonious exchanges of information, energy and immunity between females and their offspring. This functional reciprocity is vital for the survival and normal development of infants, and for the inclusive fitness of parents. It is best seen in the intense exchanges taking place around the mother's(More)
In the context of lexicalized grammars, we propose general methods for lexical disam-biguation based on polarization and abstraction of grammatical formalisms. Polarization makes their resource sensitivity explicit and abstraction aims at keeping essentially the mechanism of neutralization between polarities. Parsing with the simplified grammar in the(More)
A knowledge of the rotatory motion of the vertebral bodies is needed to understand the normal biomechanical behavior of the spine. The aims of this investigation were 1) to define the instantaneous axis of rotation of the lumbar spine in rotation; and 2) to study the effect of the loss of the anulus, facet joints, and ligamentous structures on the location(More)
Cet article propose une méthode pour calculer les dépendances syntaxiques d'un´ enoncéà partir du processus d'analyse en constituants. L'objectif est d'obtenir des dépendancescompì etes c'est-` a-dire contenant toutes les informations nécessairesà la construction de la sémantique. Pour l'analyse en constituants, on utilise le formalisme des grammaires(More)
Maurice Gross' grammar lexicon contains an extremly rich and exhaustive information about the morphosyntactic and semantic properties of French syntactic functors (verbs, adjectives, nouns). Yet its use within natural language processing systems is still restricted. In this paper, we first argue that the information contained in the grammar lexicon is(More)
