Abstract

We describe the implementation of a computational grammar for Romanian as a resource grammar in the GF project (Grammatical Framework). Resource grammars are the basic constituents of the GF library. They consist of morphological and syntactical modules which implement a common abstract syntax, also describing the basic features of a language. The present paper explores the main features of the Romanian grammar, along with the way they fit into the framework that GF provides. We also compare the implementation for Romanian with related resource grammars that exist already in the library. The current resource grammar allows generation and parsing of natural language and can be used in multilingual translations and other GF-related applications. Covering a wide range of specific morphological and syntactical features of the Romanian language, this GF resource grammar is the most comprehensive open-source grammar existing so far for Romanian.
