Query:   Dear all,

I'm looking for references to the problem of
designing a core grammar, i.e. a grammar
that covers central phenomena of a language
and that is intended to be applicable to a wide
range of applications.

I was having a look at the HP Test Suite
(Flickinger-etal:87), the EU projects TSNLP and
DiET, the LinGO ERG grammar (Stanford), the
XTAG English grammar (UPenn).
Do you know of any other relevant contributions?

I'll post a summary of the responses I'll receive.

Best regards.

Cristina Barbero
