The aut~natic sentence structure analysis procedure described earlier~'----has been programmed. The formalism is not trans- formational, but is sufficiently general to permit the expression of a wide variety of structural models. It is now being used to obtain automatic structural descriptions which are very close to the "deep structure" structural descriptions of transformational theory. The formalism will be described, and its use for various structural models will be illustrated. A detailed description of the reformula- tion of a transformational grammar of English in terms of the approximate formalism will be given. The salient features of the computer program which operates on the formalism will be described, and samples of output will be presented. (I) D@ Lieberman, "A Procedure for ...
