eXtensible MetaGrammar Workshop

Supported by the ARC INRIA Mosaïque and the CPER ILD-ISTC

LORIA
Nancy, France
June 21-22, 2007

Overview

eXtensible MetaGrammar (XMG) is a tool for designing large scaled grammars for natural language. It implements an alternative language of grammatical representation to the classical languages used for this purpose such as PATR II. Provided a compact representation of grammatical information, XMG combines elementary fragments of information to output a fully redundant strongly lexicalised grammar.

The XMG workshop will include both theoretical presentations and discussions and hand on experience with XMG. The overall aim is both to show how XMG can be used in practice and to identify its current limitations. Depending on people's interest, the workshop might also include a more general discussion about high level linguistic formalisms.
