@TECHREPORT{AICPub662:1983, AUTHOR={Stuart M. Shieber, Stucky, Susan U., Uszkoreit, Hans and Robinson, Jane J.}, TITLE={Formal Constraints On Metarules}, ADDRESS={333 Ravenswood Ave., Menlo Park, CA 94025}, INSTITUTION={AI Center, SRI International}, MONTH={Apr}, NUMBER={283}, YEAR={1983}, KEYWORDS={Natural Language!Grammar metarules}, ABSTRACT={Metagrammatical formalisms that combine context-free phrase structure rules and metarules (MPS grammars) allow concise statement of generalizations about the syntax of natural languages. Unconstrained MPS grammars, unfortunately, are not computationally ``safe.’’ We evaluate several proposals for constraining them, basing our assessment on computational tractability and explanatory adequacy. We show that none of them satisfies both criteria, and suggest new directions for research on alternative metagrammatical formalisms.} }
