  author={Cornelis H. A. Koster and Carole Tiberius},
This paper is concerned with the development of grammars suitable for full-text Information Retrieval. It rst sets out some of the design criteria which should be taken into account in writing such a grammar. Then the notation of AAx Grammars over a Finite Lattice (agfl) is described, a simple formalism for the morphosyntactic description of natural languages which has an ecient implementation. It is shown how the agfl formalism helps in writing grammars with the properties demanded by… CONTINUE READING
