We show the application of an optimisation technique to natural language processing: genetic algorithms, thanks to the definition of a data structure called board and a formal distance. The system hms two interesting features: non-directionality, whict~ Ls more than hi- directionality, and self-assessment, independently of the inner knowledge. Results of experiments are presented and discussed.
