Machine recognition of transformational grammars of english( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The report is divided into three sections. Section I, written by Robert Kirk, contains a fragment of an English grammar dealing with complement constructions in English. It is based upon the IBM Core Grammar of English by Peter Rosenbaum and Dorita Lochak (Yorktown Heights, 1966), though modified in order to accommodate the Stanley R. Petrick recognition algorithm. The grammar has been tested on the IBM 7094 computer located at the MIT Computation Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Section II, written by Samuel Jay Keyser, contains a fragment of an English grammar dealing with questions (other than yes/no questions), relative clause formation and adjective placement. It is chronologically prior to the grammar in Section I and was constructed primarily as a vehicle to test and implement the Petrick recognition algorithm on the IBM 7094 computer. The grammar is not without linguistic interest, and the problems raised by the machine recognitions are discussed in some detail. Section III, written by Samuel Jay Keyser, contains a review of Adverbial Positions in English by Sven Jacobson (Uppsala Dissertation: Stockholm, 1964). (Author)
SYNTACTIC ANALYSIS( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Conditions that an adequate structural description must meet in order to reflect the relationships implied by a sentence are discussed. A class of transformational grammars is motivated on the basis of these conditions and exemplified by treating a specific, precisely defined grammar. An algorithm for determining all of the structural descriptions assigned to a given sentence by an arbitrary member of this class of grammars is given, and sample sentences are analyzed by means of computer program implementation of the algorithm. Other approaches to transformational analysis are reviewed. The role of an analysis procedure in a theory of perception is then examined, and characteristics of an analysis procedure are considered to determine its suitability as a perceptual model.
