This paper fo- cuses on the characterization of G-languages in terms of oo-regular languages. It is shown that the class of G-languages is a proper sub- class of the class of oo-regular languages.  ...  The cardinalities of these classes of languages and operations in them are studied. The syntactic monoids of languages in them are characterized.  ...

Acta Inform. 19 (1983), no. 3, 255-268.  ...  By requiring that each derivation tree has a computation sequence with a certain property, it is possible to give simple characterizations of well-known subclasses of attribute grammars.  ...

The authors attribute these results to the inability of children to acquire typologically implausible grammars, suggesting that adults either have distinct constraints on language learning, or are able  ...  Here, I show that the contrasts in Nowak and Baggio (2017) can be explained by language-theoretical characterizations of the stimuli, in line with a relatively recent research program focused on studying  ...  The authors attribute these results to the inability of children to acquire typologically implausible grammars, suggesting that adults either have distinct constraints on language learning, or are able  ...

Summary: “We characterize precisely the power of attribute gram- mars when all functions are identities (such attribute grammars are known to simulate functionless logic programs).  ...  A characterization of the LC(0) languages is given in terms of the simple deterministic languages and these classes of languages are compared with other classes of languages, such as the LL(1) languages  ...

An algorithm is described to determine, given the attribute grammar, how many passes from left to right are necessary for the evaluation of attributes.  ...  Attribute grammars in the sense of Knuth are considered. A condition for such a grammar is given which assures that semantic attributes can be evaluated in a single pass over the derivation tree.  ...

That is to say, any attribute grammar can be expressed as a set of equations in the Scott- Strachey style.  ...  Furthermore, properties of attribute grammars are pointed out which reflect in a simplification of both the compiler for the language being defined and the corresponding set of (denotational) semantics  ...
