A Head-Driven Approach to Incremental and Parallel Generation of Syntactic Structures

DFKI DFKI Research Reports (RR) 91-07 1991.


This paper describes the construction of syntactic structures within an incremental multi-level and parallel generation system. Incremental and parallel generation imposes special requirements upon syntactic description and processing. A head-driven grammar represented in a unification-based formalism is introduced which satisfies these demands. Furthermore the basic mechanisms for the parallel processing of syntactic segments are presented.
