TDL - A Type Description Language for HPSG. Part 2: User Guide

Hans-Ulrich Krieger; Ulrich Schäfer
DFKI, DFKI Documents (D), Vol. 94-14, 1994.


This documentation serves as a user's guide to the type description language TDL which is employed in natural language projects at the DFKI. It is intended as a guide for grammar writers rather than as a comprehensive internal documentation. Some familiarity with grammar formalisms/theories such as Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG) is assumed. The manual describes the syntax of the TDL formalism, the user-accessible control functions and variables, and the various tools such as type grapher, feature editor, TDL2LATEX, Emacs TDL mode, and print interface.
