Abstract

Existing grammar frameworks do not work out particularly well for controlled natural languages (CNL), especially if they are to be used in predictive editors. I introduce in this paper a new grammar notation, called Codeco, which is designed specifically for CNLs and predictive editors. Two different parsers have been implemented and a large subset of Attemp to Controlled English (ACE) has been represented in Codeco. The results show that Codeco is practical, adequate and efficient.
