This paper presents a system which analyzes an in- 'put text syntactically and morphologically and con- verts the text from the graphemic to the phonetic :representation (or vice versa). We describe the gram- mar formaSsm used and report a parsing experiment which compared eight parsing strategies within the :h'amework of chart parsing. Although the morpho- logical and syntactic analyzer has been developed for a text-to-speech system for German, it is language independent and general enough to be used for dia- log systems, NL-interfaces or speech recognition sys- tems.
