Toward a dynamic grammar of Chinese
Lamb, Sydney M.
Master of Arts
This thesis is a description of basic Chinese grammar. Unlike traditional methods, the descriptions uses the Dynamic Grammar Notation System, a tool designed by Sydney M. Lamb for language description and language processing. All of the syntactic and semantic description is formalized into rules, so the grammar can be used either to understand basic Chinese syntax or as a rule base in natural language processing. Some issues related to machine implementation are also discussed in the first part of the thesis.
