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)
The present study of Bulgarian nominal morphosyntax focuses on the placement of the short possessive pronouns and the interrogative particle within the nominal syntactic domain, in correlation with the distribution of the definite article. In other words, I am primarily interested in what might be called "proper" nominal clitics, while predicative clitics(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)
In this paper we present the on-going grammar engineering project in our group for developing in parallel resource precision grammars for Slavic languages. The project utilizes DELPH-IN software (LKB/[incr tsdb()]) as the grammar development platform, and has strong affinity to the LinGO Grammar Matrix project. It is innovative in that we focus on a closed(More)
A functional typology of copular “be” in Russian allows us to systematically relate variants of predication with and without copula. The analysis sketched in this article does not need empty categories; neither does it have to stipulate categories, category changes or constituents that are not morphologically signalled. With regard to HPSG formalization,(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)
