We discuss a grammar development process used to generate the trees of the wide-coverage Lexicalized Tree Adjoining Grammar (LTAG) for English of the XTAG Project. Result of the coupling of Becker’s metarules and a simple yet principled hierarchy of rule application, the approach has been successful to generate the large set of verb trees in the grammar, from a very small initial set of trees.
