This paper a t tempts to clarify two distinct notions of "reversibility": (i) Uniformity of implementation of parsing and generation, and (it) reversibility as an inherent (or intrinsic) property of grammars. On the one hand, we explain why grammars specified as definite programs (or the various related "unification grammars") lead to uniformity of implementation. On the other hand, we define different intrinsic reversibility properties for such g rammars the most important being finite… CONTINUE READING
