Linguistic Technology

Finite State Grammars

Xerox Research has a 'research theme' on finite state technologies, which includes an on-line text on finite state networks, and a list of references to finite state grammars. Includes a on-line compiler for finite state grammars.

Core Grammars

This comes from the Corpora List, in a message from Cristina Barbero (also repeated in this message on the Linguist List), who wrote:
Dear list's members,



a couple of months ago I posted a query about references

to the problem of designing a core grammar.



As promised, I'm posting a summary with the information

I collected. First of all, I would like to thank all the

people who responded to my query: Frederik Fouvry,

Wolfgang Schulze, Stefan Mueller, Markus Schulze,

Magdalena Zoeppritz, Myroslava Dzikovska, Miriam Butt,

Gabriel Pereira Lopes, Jean Pierre Chanod.



Below you can find a list of the projects, books, papers,

URLs, resources mentioned in the responses I received or

extracted through browsing on Internet.



Best.

               Cristina Barbero
