An augmented transition network grammar for English Jervis, Jean E.


The use of augmented transition network (ATM) gramaars for the analysis of natural language sentences is discussed. A small sample grammar is illustrated and briefly described. An ATN grammar for English was implemented and is described in detail. This grammar uses both semantic and syntactic information to guide the parsing. The value of the ATM model for natural language analysis is critically evaluated.
