To facilitate the development of spoken dialog systems and speech enabled applications, we introduce SGStudio (Semantic Grammar Studio), a grammar authoring tool that enables regular software developers with little speech/linguistic background to rapidly create quality semantic grammars for automatic speech recognition (ASR) and spoken language understanding (SLU). We focus on the underlying technology of SGStudio, including knowledge assisted example-based grammar learning, grammar controls
