The LinGO Grammar Matrix is developed at the University of Washington in the context of the DELPH-IN Consortium, by Emily M. Bender and colleagues. This material is based up work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. BCS-0644097. Additional support for Grammar Matrix development came from a gift to the Turing Center from the Utilika Foundation. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation. The Grammar Matrix customization system is hosted by the University of Washington.

Publications reporting on work based on grammars derived from this system should cite Bender, Flickinger and Oepen 2002 [.bib] and Bender et al 2010 [.bib]. Further publications from the project are available on the project website.

Filling out this form will produce a starter grammar for a natural language, consisting of a language-independent core and customized support for the phenomena you describe below. Note that this grammar fragment will only treat matrix (main) clauses. Be advised that this system is highly experimental. We are interested in your feedback. If you have questions or comments, please email Emily Bender at: ebender at u dot washington dot edu.
