They have applications in natural-language interpretation and generation, machine translation, sentence compression, and other areas. I will introduce and motivate the design of synchronous grammars, showing how a particular base grammar formalism, tree-adjoining grammar, is particularly suited for synchronization.For more information please contact Dr Adam Wyner (,
