Sharing portions of grammars across languages greatly reduces the costs of nutltilingual grammar engineering. Related languages share a ntuch wider range of linguistic itff'ornuttio;t than typically assunwd in stamlard mttltilingttal gramtmtr atwhitectures. Taking grammatical relatedness seriously, we are particularly interested in designing lhtguistically(More)
This paper introduces the CLIMB (Comparative Libraries of Implementations with Matrix Basis) methodology and grammars. The basic idea behind CLIMB is to use code generation as a general methodology for grammar development in order to create a more systematic approach to grammar development. The particular method used in this paper is closely related to the(More)
We present the initial steps and outlook of Slaviclimb, the dynamic component of an effort to develop grammatical resources for Slavic languages around a shared core grammar. The requirements of this component are: (i) it should provide a platform for sharing similar but not identical analyses, (ii) it should be able to contain alternative analyses for the(More)
In line with the increasing interest in fine-grained modular linguistic representations, we investigate the plausibility of exploiting shared and non-shared portions of grammars for the systematic and efficient development of grammatical resources for multiple languages. We use a new systematic structuring of well-known phenomena form Slavic morphosyntax to(More)
We discuss an alternative to the recently proposed HPSG analyses of binding by [Manning and Sag 1998] and causatives by [Manning et al. 1998] that is consistent with the lexicalist analysis of extraction proposed in [Bouma et al. 1998, 1999], and, in addition, creatively incorporates basic linguistic insights from the long-standing dependency grammar(More)
