Abstract:
When linguistically motivated grammars are implemented on larger scale, and applied to real-life corpora,
keeping track of ambiguity sources becomes a difficult task. Yet it is of great importance, since unintended
ambiguities arising form underrestricted rules or interactions have to be distinguished from linguistically
warranted ambiguities. In this paper we report on various tools in the XLE grammar development platform
which can be used for ambiguities that allow the grammar writer to view sorted descriptions of ambiguity
sources. Also discussed are tools for specifying desired tree structures and for cutting down the solution
space prior to parsing.
