The paper discusses the linguistic aspects of a new gen- eral purpose facility for computing with features. The pro- gram was developed in connection with the course I taught at the University of Texas in the fall of 1983. It is a general- ized and expanded version of a system that Stuart Shieber originally designed for the PATR-II project at SRI in the spring of 1983 with later modifications by Fernando Pereira and me. Like its predecessors, the new Texas version of the "DG {directed graph}" package is primarily intended for representing morphological and syntactic information but it may turn out to be very useful for semantic representa- tions too.
