This page contains some vain attempts to document and thus maybe eventually standardize some of the conventions used when writing grammars.

*grammar-version*

Information about the version of the grammar is kept in a string called *grammar-version*, defined in a file usually called Version.lsp. This is read in the lkb/script and pet/flop.set, as well as external utilities that care about the grammar version, such as the lextype-db. It is conventionally of the form "name (version)", where version is normally some kind of date.

Examples:

(defparameter *grammar-version* "LinGO (20-Dec-06)")
(defparameter *grammar-version* "Jacy (2007-10-10)")
(defparameter *grammar-version* "NorSource (Jan-06)")
(defparameter *grammar-version* "NoEn (27-aug-04)")
(defparameter *grammar-version* "GG (Jul_2006)")
(defparameter *grammar-version* "pseudo_japanese (Matrix-10-2006)")
