TDL - A Type Description Language for HPSG, Part 2: User Guide.
This documentation serves as a user's guide to the type description language which is employed in natural language projects at the DFKI. It is intended as a guide for grammar writers rather than as a comprehensive internal documentation. Some familiarity with grammar formalisms/theories such as Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG) is assumed. The manual describes the syntax of the formalism, the user-accessible control functions and variables, and the various tools such as type grapher, feature editor, 2LATEX, Emacs mode, and print interface.
