Title: COMPUTATIONAL MODELS FOR SYNTACTIC ANALYSIS - THEIR FITNESS FOR WRITING A COMPUTATIONAL GRAMMAR FOR HEBREW
Authors: S. Wintner and U. Ornan

Abstract: In the past ten years many grammatical formalisms have been developed. A grammatical formalism is a formal tool by which grammars for natural languages can be written. Most of the formalisms are based on linguistic theories; some of them were used, together with an implementation of a parsing algorithm, to produce a {\em parser-generator} - a computational model for developing parsers. In this work some of these models are described and evaluated. As our main interest is to devise a computational grammar for Hebrew, our point of view will be that of the grammar-writer. Our criteria will be the tools with which the formalisms provide the grammar writer and the ease of writing a grammar using these tools. We'll use examples from a grammar for Hebrew that is currently being developed. As a consequence we'll try to sketch some of the properties of a `good' grammatical formalism.
