A considerable body of accumulated knowledge about the design of languages for communicating information to computers has been derived from the subfields of program- ming language design and semantics. It has been the goal of the PArR group at SRI to utilize a relevant portion of this knowledge in implementing tools to facilitate communica- tion of linguistic information to computers. The PATR-II formalism is our current computer language for encoding linguistic information.
