We. have developed a parser generator for natural language i)rocessing. The generator named "NLyace" accepts g rammar rules written in the Yacc format . NLyacc, unlike Yacc, can handle a rb i t ra ry context-free grammars using the generalized Lll. parsing Mgorithm. The parser produced by NLyacc elliciently parses given sentences and executes semantic actions. NLyacc, which is a free and sharable software, runs on UNIX workstat ions and personal computers. 1 P a r s e r G e n e r a t o r for N… CONTINUE READING
