Universität des Saarlandes, CLAUS-Report, Vol. 1, 1990.


The "Saarbrücken Workshop on Grammar Engineering" took place from June 21st to 23rd, 1990. The aim of the workshop was to bring together for 3 days of intensive discussion a number of people with practical experience in the development of large-coverage grammars and researchers who have investigated concepts and tools for grammar development. The workshop focused on the methodology of grammar engineering, testing and evaluation of grammars, the problem of distributed development, the formalisms and tools needed, and grammar maintenance and reusability. A variety of approaches to grammar writing were presented. Prerequisites for effective grammar engineering were identified.
