Natural language processing (NLP) has long been used to automatically analyze language produced by language learners, typically aimed at providing individualized feedback and learner modeling in Intelligent Computer-Assisted Language Learning systems (cf. Heift & Schulze 2007). While much interesting research has been reported, it is difficult to determine(More)
Contextual Grammars (CGs) provide an appropriate description of natural languages. Unfortunately, no parser which runs in polynomial time was known for some linguistically relevant classes. In this paper, an intertwined two–level Earley–based parser for CGs with finite, regular and context–free selectors is presented. In both phases context–free grammars(More)

However , in human face-to-face conversation, participants fre= quently use various sorts of deictic gestures as well. In this paper, we will present the referent identification component of XTRA, a system for a natural-language access(More)
