Zhong [|] is an HPSG/MRS-based DELPH-IN grammar for the Chinese languages, including Mandarin Chinese (simplified and traditional), Cantonese, Min, etc. Currently Simplified Mandarin is the best supported language. This grammar is based off ManGO (http://moin.delph-in.net/MandarinGrammarOnline) created by Justin Yang (JustinChunleiYang) and Dan Flickinger (http://lingo.stanford.edu/dan/).

Note on naming

The grammar's name is the first character of 中文 Zhōngwén “Chinese Language”. The grammar's name is frequently written "Zhong [∣]", where the final three characters are an ASCII approximation of the Chinese character 中. In some fonts this looks better, with the middle pipe character extending above and below the brackets. You can approximate this in LaTeX with something like Zhong \texttt{[{\large$|$}]}. The final three characters are not pronounced, and it is also acceptable to call the grammar merely "Zhong".


You can download the current grammar from the Github. You can get the grammar using the following command.

$ git clone https://github.com/delph-in/zhong.git


You can try Zhong (for Simplified Mandarin Chinese) here: Delphin-Viz Demo. Select "Zhong (UW)" as the grammar. Currently you have to segment the sentences yourself.
