Title Grammar Development in GF
Venue Annual Meeting of The European Chapter of The Association of Computational Linguistics
Session System Demonstration
Year 2009

GF is a grammar formalism that has a powerful type system and module system, permitting a high level of abstraction and division of labour in grammar writing. GF is suited both for expert linguists, who appreciate its capacity of generalizations and conciseness, and for beginners, who benefit from its static type checker and, in particular, the GF Resource Grammar Library, which currently covers 12 lan- guages. GF has a notion of multilingual grammars, enabling code sharing, linguis- tic generalizations, rapid development of translation systems, and painless porting of applications to new languages.
