LINGER: Language INdependent Grammatical Error Reporter

This directory contains LINGER, a tool for grammar analysis of Western European languages. LINGER is a language-independent system to analyze natural language sentences and report and correct grammatical errors encountered. An important objective is that the system should be easily configured for a particular natural language by an expert in that language but not in computer science. This library contains two versions of Linger. The older one contains only a French grammar. The more recent also has German, Spanish, and English. Both versions were contributed by Paul O'Brien and Masoud Yazdani, and were written in Expert Systems International Prolog-2.
