Book description:

The ascendance of communication technologies such as the internet has
accentuated the need to improve access, manipulation and translation
of written language. One of the main goals of researchers in the field
of computational linguistics is to create programs that put to use
knowledge of human language in pursuit of technology that can overcome
the many obstacles in the interaction between human and computer. In
this endeavor, finding automated techniques to parse the complexities
of human grammar is a premier problem tackled by human-interface
researchers. The intricacy of human grammar poses problems not only of
accuracy, but also of efficiency.

"EFFICIENT PROCESSING WITH CONSTRAINT-LOGIC GRAMMARS USING GRAMMAR 
COMPILATION" by Guido Minnen investigates programs for automatic 
analysis and production of written human language. These specialized 
programs use knowledge about the structure and meaning of human 
language in the form of grammars. Various techniques are proposed 
which focus on solutions for practical problems in processing of 
constraint-logic grammars. The solutions are all based on the 
automatic adaptation or compilation of a grammar rather than a 
modification of the processing algorithm used. As such they allow 
the grammar writer to abstract over details of grammar processing and 
in many cases enable more efficient processing.
