The syntax of Attempto Controlled English: An abstract grammar for ACE 4.0


Hoefler, S (2004). The syntax of Attempto Controlled English: An abstract grammar for ACE 4.0. ifi Technical Reports ifi2004.03, University of Zurich.

Abstract

Attempto Controlled English (ACE) is a controlled natural language specifically designed for requirements specifications and knowledge representation. ACE is a subset of English with a restricted grammar constrained by a small set of construction and interpretation rules.
In this report, we describe the syntax of ACE, version 4.0, and present an abstract grammar for it in the form of phrase structure rules enhanced by features. The report aims at the implementer who is interested in the linguistic background of ACE. It underlies the current version of the Attempto parser. It is not intended to be a reference manual for the user of ACE.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
