JSLIM - Computational Morphology in the Framework of the SLIM Theory of Language

  title={JSLIM - Computational Morphology in the Framework of the SLIM Theory of Language},
  author={Johannes Handl and Besim Kabashi and Thomas Proisl and Carsten Weber},
JSLIM is a software system for writing grammars in accordance with the SLIM theory of language. [] Key Method The first section starts with a basic description of the functionality of a Left Associative Grammar (LAG) and provides an algebraic definition of a JSLIM grammar. The second section deals with the new concepts of JSLIM in comparison with earlier implementations. The third section describes the format of the grammar files, i.e. of the lexicon, of the rules and of the variables. The fourth section…

It is argued that DBS schemata based on the grammatical relations of functor-argument and coordination structure help to improve recall and precision.
Language Production Based on Autonomous Control A Content-Addressable Memory for a Model of Cognition
While earlier DBS analyses of the speaker mode concentrated on language production from stored content, this paper explores the founda tions of an autonomous control, including the control of language production.
A Multilayered Declarative Approach to Cope with Morphotactics and Allomorphy in Derivational Morphology
This paper presents a set of declarative rules which augment lexical entries with information governing the allomorphic changes of derivation in addition to the existing allomorphy rules for inflection, and proves the usability of the approach by using the generated allomorphs as the lexicon for automatic wordform recognition.
Inferencing in Database Semantics
This paper proposes to realize the principle of balance by sequences of inferences which respond to a deviation from the agent's balance with a suitable blueprint for action (countermeasure) with the time-linear algorithm of Left-Associative grammar.

Database Semantics is presented as a first step towards a translation of linguistic theory into a framework of “practical linguistics” and can be used to describe linguistic as well as extralinguistic content (to represent utterances and the context, respectively).
Modeling Natural Language Communication in Database Semantics
Defined at a level of abstraction which may be applied to natural and artificial agents alike, such a model is a precondition for achieving free human-machine communication in natural language, and thus has great potential for a wide range of practical applications.
