Building and Using a Russian Resource Grammar in GF
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2004
Grammatical Framework (GF)  is a grammar formalism for describing formal and natural languages. An application grammar in GF is usually written for a restricted language domain, e.g. to map a formal language to a natural language. A resource grammar, on the other hand, aims at a complete description of a natural languages. The language-independent grammar API (Application Programmer's Interface) allows the user of a resource grammar to build application grammars in the same way as a programmer writes programs using a standard library. In an ongoing project, we have developed an API suitable for technical language, and implemented it for English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Swedish. This paper gives an outline of the project using Russian as an example.
