Context-sensitive is an adjective meaning "depending on context" or "depending on circumstances". It may refer to: Context-sensitive meaning, where meaning depends on context (language use). Context-sensitive grammar, a formal grammar in which the left-hand sides and right-hand sides of any production rules may be surrounded by a context of terminal and nonterminal symbols. context-sensitive grammar A grammar in which each production has the form αAβ → αγβ where A is a nonterminal and α, β, and γ are arbitrary words with γ nonempty. If γ was allowed to be empty then any type 0 (equivalently, recursively enumerable) language of the Chomsky hierarchy could be generated. To derive the empty word, a production S → Λ.

In formal language theory, a context-free grammar (CFG) is a certain type of formal grammar: a set of production rules that describe all possible strings in a given formal language. Production rules are simple replacements. For example, the rule → replaces can be multiple replacement rules for any given value. For example.   The definition of context free grammars (CFGs) allows us to develop a wide variety of grammars. Most of the time, some of the productions of CFGs are not useful and are redundant. This happens because the definition of CFGs does not restrict .

ELI5: Difference Between Context Free and Context Sensitive Grammars. Edit, disregard this I knew less than I though: I know that all human languages and a lot of programming languages are context free and that this has something to do with allowing recursion. I read the wiki pages and I . Context-sensitive grammars and languages. A context-sensitive grammar is one whose productions are all of the form xAy xvy where A V and x, v, y (V T)*. A context-sensitive language is a language generated by a context-sensitive grammar.. The name "context-sensitive" comes from the fact that the actual string modification is given by A v, while the x and y provide the context in which the rule.

Recognition for acyclic context-sensitive grammars is NP-complete Aarts, H.M.F.M. Document version: Publisher's PDF, also known as Version of record Publication date: Link to publication Citation for published version (APA): Aarts, H.

Recognition for acyclic context-sensitive grammars is NP-complete. (ITK Research Report). Recognition for Acyclic Context-Sensitive Grammars is probably Polynomial for Fixed Grammars Erik Aarts no.

8 Institute for Language Technology and Artificial Intelligence, Tilburg University,LE Tilburg, The Netherlands Phone: tFax: f   The acyclic context-sensitive languages are defined by context-sensitive grammars the contextfree kernels of which contain no cycles of chain rules, which is equivalent to being context-sensitive and weight-increasing at the same time.

p] In this paper we show that these two language classes coincide, that is, for each weight-increasing grammar Cited by: 6. Download Citation | The Growing Context-Sensitive Languages Are the Acyclic Context-Sensitive Languages | The growing context-sensitive languages have.

The language generated by the Context Sensitive Grammar is called context sensitive language. If G is a Context Sensitive Grammar then, L(G) = fw j(w 2 +) ^(S) G w)g Example.

The following grammar(G) is context-sensitive. S!aTbjab aT!aaTbjac L(G) = fabg[fancbnjn >0g Rajaguru K (CSA, IISc) Context Sensitive Grammars Automata Seminar, Dec,   A Context-sensitive grammar is an Unrestricted grammar in which all the productions are of form – Where α and β are strings of non-terminals and terminals.

Context-sensitive grammars are more powerful than context-free grammars because there are some languages that can be described by CSG but not by context-free grammars and CSL are less. A context-sensitive grammar (CSG) is a formal grammar in which the left-hand sides and right-hand sides of any production rules may be surrounded by a context of terminal and nonterminal t-sensitive grammars are more general than context-free grammars, in the sense that there are languages that can be described by CSG but not by context-free grammars.

It is well known that the family of context-sensitive grammars generate languages which are not context-free and that it is undecidable whether a context-sensitive grammar generates a context-free language.

However, the mechanism by which Recognition for acyclic context-sensitive grammars isNP-complete book use of context allows a non-context-free language to be generated is not well understood. In this paper we attempt to focus on this problem by surveying.

It's an unfortunate that these grammars are called "context-sensitive grammars" because it means that "context-free" and "context-sensitive" are not opposites, and it means that there are certain classes of grammars that arguably take a lot of contextual information into account but aren't formally considered to be context-sensitive.

A context-sensitive grammar is a growing context-sensitive grammar, if the right-hand side of every production is strictly longer than the left-hand side. We show that for any fixed growing context sensitive grammar, the membership problem for the corresponding language is polynomial.

Academic Press, Inc. Context-sensitive grammars in which each rule is of the form → γ is acyclic. The problem whether an input string is in the language generated by an acyclic context-sensitive grammar is NP-complete.

• Context-sensitive Languages / Grammars Rewrite rules αXβ → αγβ where X is a non-terminal, and α,β,γ are any string of terminals and nonterminals, (γ must be non-empty). • Context-free Languages / Grammars Rewrite rules X → γ where X is a nonterminal and γ is any string of terminals and nonterminals • Regular Languages.

The complement of a context-sensitive language is itself context-sensitive a result known as the Immerman–Szelepcsényi theorem. Membership of a string in a language defined by an arbitrary context-sensitive grammar, or by an arbitrary deterministic context-sensitive grammar, is.

Well known example of Context-sensitive grammar which produces language $\{a^nb^nc^n|n\geq 1\}$ is widely used in various papers. But actually, while this language is definitely context-sensitive, it is also belongs to smaller subset of CS-languages: it is indexed language, because it can be described with indexed grammar as well.

What I'm looking for, it is example of Context-sensitive. Type-0 Grammars and Context-Sensitive Grammars We begin with type-0 grammars. At first glance, it may appear that they are more restrictive than phrase-structure grammars, but this is not so.

Definition Atype-0 grammar isaphrase-structuregram-mar G = (V,Σ,P,S), such that the productions are of the form α → β, where α ∈ N+.

They are drawn from the book Models of Computation and Formal Languages by R. Taylor. Context sensitive grammar / Type 1 grammar - lecture65/toc - Duration: asha khilrani 1, views.

Theory Of Computation lecture 65 - Duration: Context Sensitive Grammar. The Context Sensitive Grammar is a formal grammar surrounded by a context of terminal and non-terminal grammar. It is less general than Unrestricted Grammar and more general than Context Free Grammar.

The context-sensitive grammar was introduced by Noam Chomsky in the Formal definition of Context-Sensitive Grammar. In formal language theory, a growing context-sensitive grammar is a context-sensitive grammar in which the productions increase the length of the sentences being generated.

These grammars are thus noncontracting and context-sensitive. A growing context-sensitive language is a context-sensitive language generated by these grammars. In these grammars the "start symbol" S does not appear. Semantic predicates are a powerful means of recognizing context-sensitive language structures by allowing runtime information to drive recognition.

But the examples in the book are very simple. What i need to know is: can ANTLR parse context-sensitive rules like: xAy --> xBy. Grammars were used in computer science from the beginning for designing compilers for the first programming language.

They were later used in image generation (for example, L-systems were used to generate beautiful pictures of plants). Therefore, using grammars for pattern recognition in images seems to be a natural research avenue. Hi everyone. I think building a context sensitive speech recognition grammar (or something that can behave like this) is possible.

There is a speech recognition vocabulary specially made with medical terms that can be used with various speech recognition software like Windows Speech Recogniton and the Dragon NaturallySpeaking. A context-sensitive grammar (CSG) is a formal grammar in which the left-hand sides and right-hand sides of any production rules may be surrounded by a context of terminal and nonterminal symbols.

Context-sensitive grammars are more general than context-free grammars but still orderly enough to be parsed by a linear bounded automaton. The concept of context-sensitive grammar was. Here are some CFG Solved Examples and Contex free grammar to context free language tips and tricks.

This tutorial is useful for the students of B. Tech and M. Tech. grammar), and then we need to explain how it is used. Unlike automata, grammars are used to generate strings, rather than recognize strings.

Definition A context-free grammar (for short, CFG) is a quadruple G =(V,Σ,P,S), where • V is a finite set of symbols called the vocabulary (or set of grammar.

Using Attribute Grammars Attribute grammars can specify context-sensitive actions • Take values from syntax • Perform computations with values • Insert tests, logic, Synthesized Attributes •Use values from children & from constants •S-attributed grammars: synthesized attributes only •Evaluate in a single bottom-up pass Good.

Probably, many authors use the name "context-sensitive grammar" for what wikipedia calls a "noncontracting grammar"; the sentence "Some definitions of a context-sensitive grammar only require that for any production rule of the form u → v, the length of u shall be less than or equal to the length of v." in Context-sensitive grammar#Formal.

Regular grammars, context-free grammars, and context-sensitive grammars differ in their expressive power, with regular grammars being the simplest, and context-sensitive grammars the most powerful of the three.

From reading this paper, it is not even clear that the status of the empty word (U) was clear in Chosmsky's mind (p. ). Though he sees it as the identity on strings, he also considers it as a special symbol (rather than a meta-symbol).Context Free Grammar for English 7 Context-Free Rules and Trees • Bracket notation of parse tree (see next page) • Grammatical vs.
