How can grammar be viewed as a functional part of a cognitive system) Given a neural basis for the processing control paradigm of language performance, what roles does 'Sgrammar" play? Is there evidence to suggest that grammatical pro- cessing can be independent from other aspects of language processing? This paper will focus on these issues and suggest answers within the context of one com- putational solution. The example model of sen- tence comprehension, HOPE, is intended to demon- strate both representational considerations for a grammar within such a system as well as to illus- trate that by interpreting a grammar as a feedback control mechanism of a "neural-like" process, additional insights into language processing can be obtained.
