The paper describes a new unification based grammar formalism called Regular Unification Grammar (RUG). The formalism is under development at the Research Unit of Computational Linguistics, University of Helsinki, In outline, RUG can be described as a combination of an extended graph unification formalism with a fixed minimal finite state syntax. Section I of the paper outlines the RUG formalism. Section II describes some aspects of its current implementation. Section III describes an experimental RUG grammar for Finnish. I. The RUG formalism RUG constitutes a unification based grammar formalism /Shieber86/. In outline, RUG can be described as a combination of an extended graph unification formalism with a fixed minimal finite state syntax. It shares with categorial unification grammar (a)...
