Venue Annual Meeting of The European Chapter of The Association of Computational Linguistics

We present a web service for natural language parsing, prediction, generation, and translation using grammars in Portable Grammar Format (PGF), the target format of the Grammatical Framework (GF) grammar compiler. The web service implementation is open source, works with any PGF grammar, and with any web server that supports FastCGI. The service ex- poses a simple interface which makes it pos- sible to use it for interactive natural language web applications. We describe the function- ality and interface of the web service, and demonstrate several applications built on top of it.
