The educational software to the teaching module Grammar Formalisms
and Parsing is done in cooperation with the subcontractors at
University in Columbus, Ohio (USA), and at the
University of Toronto in
Toronto, Ontario (Canada).|
Detmar Meuers (Columbus) is the co-author of a grammar implementation
course which has already been held at the University of Tübingen and
numerous times, at international summer schools. The focal points of
his contribution are the construction of didactic grammars and the
support of the course module for lexical rules.
Gerald Penn (Toronto) is the chief developer of
two implementation platforms for HPSG grammars, namely
ALE and TRALE, which was expanded from ALE.
The upgrading of the TRALE system with regard to its usage
within the perimeters of online courses falls into his area of
responsibility. Among the main points of his efforts are the
interaction of the user with the system and the implementation of
graphical debugging devices. With new interfaces and new possibilites
of interaction between the user and the system, TRALE is being
developed from a research tool to a "robust" virtual teaching
environment for students.
