The Speci cation and Implementation ofConstraint-Based Uni cation Grammars

  title={The Speci cation and Implementation ofConstraint-Based Uni cation Grammars},
  author={Bob Carpenter and Carl and Pollardy and Alex and FranzPhilosophy},
Our aim is to motivate and provide a speciication for a uniication-based natural language processing system where grammars are expressed in terms of principles which constrain linguistic representations. Using typed feature structures with multiple inheritance for our linguistic representations and deenite attribute-value logic clauses to express constraints, we will develop the bare essentials required for an implementation of a parser and generator for the Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar… CONTINUE READING
