This book presents one of the most commonly used grammatical formalisms, Unification Grammars, which underlies contemporary linguistic theories such as Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG) and Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG).

The book provides a robust and rigorous exposition of the formalism which is both mathematically well-founded and linguistically : Hardcover.

In parsers for unification-based grammar formalisms, complex phrase types are derived by incremental refinement of rite phrase types defined in grammar rules and lexical entries.

A very advanced and wide-spread class of linguistic formalisms are the so-called constraint-based grammar formalisms. Also often subsumed under the term unification grammars; Constraint-baed grammars should not be confused with constraint grammars.

For some sizable grammars written in unification grammar formalisms, the development time was four years or less (TUG, CLE, TDL), whereas the development of large annotated phrase structure grammars had Simplified unification based grammar formalisms.

This paper suggests a way of bringing together type theory and unification as found in unification-based grammar formalisms like HPSG by using records in type theory which provide us with feature structure like objects.

Attribute and unification grammar are syntax-directed grammatical formalisms that bear an important resemblance to each other and, especially in the case of unification grammar, enjoy certain currency as tools for linguistic description.

A systematic study and comparison of the two formalisms, however, has not been reported to date. This paper reviews and compares the two formalisms Cited by: 3.

Abstract. Unification-based grammar formalisms rest on the representation of linguistic entities in terms of feature-value structures. Lexical entries, grammar rules, phrases, and sentences are represented by complex feature structures enriched with by: The formalization presented in this paper is based on Hellwig's Dependency Unification Grammar (DUG) (Hellwig ).

We merely add a framework for automatic translation of DUG rules to Horn clauses that makes DUGs as easy to implement as classic DCGs. Dependency Grammar as Context-Free Grammar.

This book has a series of prolog programs that lead the reader through the development of grammar parse trees for natural language.

This chapter provides an overview of the logic of unification grammar. The characteristic property of all grammar theories or formalisms which are commonly called unification-based is the explicit or implicit use of structures which are classified throughout all these theories under the term feature by: 2.

the simplest of the unification-based formalisms. One thing has become clear through this morass of historical fortuities: unification is a powerful tool for grammar formalisms.

All these formalisms make crucial use of unification in one manner or another, supplementing it, for various linguistic or computational reasons, with other mechanisms.

Three areas stand out among the omissions. First, this book does not compare the logic programming approach with other approaches to natural language processing, in particular the closely related unification-based grammar formalisms. Second, this book does not present or compare the plethora of grammar formalisms based on logic programming.

one in which unification is used for semantic interpre- tation, while purely formal agreement involves only a check for non-distinctnessi.e, variable-matching without variable substitution. 1 Introduction In recent years, a great deal of attention has been de- voted to complex-feature based grammar formalisms A Powerful Grammar Formalism The grammar formalism I will define in this chapter is closely related to other formalisms currently in use in computational linguistics.

These formalisms are known as `unification-based', `constraint-based', `information-based' and `feature-logic based'. The current formalism being simultaneously designed, implemented, and used by the group, PATR-II, is based on unification of directed-graph structures.

The papers presented in this compilation describe techniques for efficiently implementing formalisms that make use of such a concept of unification. An Introduction to Unification-Based Approaches to Grammar, volume 4 of CSLI Lecture Notes Series.

Using results from ADT theory we define a simple and fast syntactic decision procedure testing the usual consistency, constant/complex consistency and acyclicity on the algebraic specification.

Grammar, Formal in linguistics, a logical system or calculation that poses a certain set of (“grammatical”) chains (finite sequences) constructed from symbols of a given finite set called an alphabet or basic (terminal) vocabulary.

In the theory of formal grammar, these chains are interpreted as linguistic objects of various levels (for example. Moreover, synchronous formalisms do not deal with unification and feature structures, as in unification-based formalisms, that give patterns additional power for describing constraints on features.

For example, multiple context-free grammar [4] uses functions for the non-terminal symbols in the productions to further interpret the symbols in Cited by: 7. Unification-based grammar formalisms use structures containing sets of features to describe linguistic objects. Although computational algorithms for unification of feature structures have been worked out in experimental research, these algorithms become quite complicated, and a more precise description of feature structures is desirable.
