FUF and SURGE: NLG system based on Functional Unification Grammar

This directory contains FUF and SURGE. FUF is a natural language generation system based on the formalism of functional unification grammars. SURGE is a large grammar for FUF with a very good coverage of English syntax. SURGE is inspired by systemic grammars [Halliday 1985] and HPSG. A user manual and numerous examples are included. Also included is a copy of Elhadad's thesis, which provides detailed information on the design of FUF and the only documentation available on the SURGE grammar.

Version: FUF 5.3 (24-APR-94); SURGE 1.2 (21-DEC-93) Requires: Common Lisp Ports: Tested under Lucid CL, Allegro CL, MCL, Ibuki CL, and POPLOG CL. Copying: Copyright (c) 1987-93 by Michael Elhadad.
