CHR Grammars [article]

Henning Christiansen

The formalism extends previous logic programming based grammars with a form of context-sensitive rules and the possibility to include extra-grammatical hypotheses in both head and body of grammar rules  ...  A grammar formalism based upon CHR is proposed analogously to the way Definite Clause Grammars are defined and implemented on top of Prolog.  ...  This research is supported in part by the OntoQuery funded by the Danish Research Councils, and the IT-University of Copenhagen.  ...

Transformational priors over grammars

Jason Eisner
2002 Proceedings of the ACL-02 conference on Empirical methods in natural language processing - EMNLP '02  
A basic version that bases relatedness on weighted edit distance yields superior smoothing of grammars learned from the Penn Treebank (20% reduction of rule perplexity over the best previous method). 1  ...  The prior favors grammars in which the relationships are simple to describe and have few major exceptions.  ...  Indeed, Figure 1 can be converted to any lexicalized theory of grammar, such as categorial grammar, TAG, LFG, HPSG, or Minimalism.  ...

Universal moral grammar: a critical appraisal

Emmanuel Dupoux, Pierre Jacob
2007 Trends in Cognitive Sciences  
A new framework for the study of the human moral faculty is currently receiving much attention: the socalled 'universal moral grammar' framework.  ...  We review the evidence and argue that formal grammatical concepts are of limited value for the study of moral judgments, moral development and moral diversity.  ...  In sum, moral competence does not seem to be modular in the relevant sense. Is there a moral grammar?  ...
