 Context-free grammar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For instance, given a context-free grammar, one can use the Chomsky Normal Form to construct a polynomial-time algorithm which decides whether a given string is in the language represented by that grammar or not (the CYK algorithm).
Context-free grammars are powerful enough to describe the syntax of most programming languages; in fact, the syntax of most programming languages are specified using context-free grammars.
On the other hand, context-free grammars are simple enough to allow the construction of efficient parsing algorithms which, for a given string, determine whether and how it can be generated from the grammar.

 PlanetMath: context-free language
A context-free grammar is a grammar that generates a context-free language.
Context-free grammars are also known as Type-2 grammars in the Chomsky hierarchy.
Backus-Naur Form (or BNF as it is commonly denoted) is a convenient notation used to represent context-free grammars in a much more intuitive manner than the definition above.

 Context-Free Grammars
Grammar designers should keep this list to a minimum because the efficiency of the grammar -- both the processing required and the accuracy of recognition -- can be affected by the number of exported rules.
If an application loads another grammar that exports a rule of that name, the first grammar borrows that rule and all of the vocabulary referenced by the rule from the second grammar, even if the second grammar is not activated.
When grammars are linked, one grammar indicates that it imports a rule from another grammar and identifies the rule name by a string.

An ambiguous grammar is a grammar for which there exists a string of symbols having at least two different derivation trees.
As previously noted, grammars used for biological sequence analysis are ambiguous because they aim at describing the space of all possible configurations.

 The Omphalos Context-Free Grammar Learning Competition
For each target grammar a set of positive sentences were constructed, such that for every rule in the target grammar, a positive sentence was added to the training set that is derived using that rule.
According to Lemma 8 where the grammar is known to be deterministic this implies that a set of candidate grammars can be constructed from the training set that includes the target grammar.
The most specific grammar can be represented by a grammar, where for each node of all derivation trees, that non-terminal is not used in any derivation tree.

 To prove Context Free Grammar (CFG) is LL1
To prove your CFG (Context Free Grammar) is LL1 or not.
I was tired of proving the CFG is LL1 or not, so I wrote this program to do the tedious and time-consuming job.
In my CS510 (Compiler Design) course, we were asked to write CFG for a sample language (subset of C), and later write syntax analyzer for it.

 Context Free
A context free grammar is a description of a language in a set of rules.
Context Free lets you write a set of rules about how to generate an image, and then follows those rules to create a image.
The process is considered context free because each expansion of a symbol via some rule can be done independently of any of the expansions of other symbols.

 Context-Free Grammars
Given a grammar G with start symbol S, if there is some sequence of productions that, when applied to the initial string S, result in the string s, then s is in L(G), the language of the grammar.
We can prove that this grammar generates the language by induction on n, the number of zeros and ones in the string.
We can define a grammar G for which there there is no FA F such that L(F) == L(G).

 grammar
Grammar is the study of the rules governing the use of a language.
The formal study of grammar is an important part of education from a young age through advanced learning, though the rules taught in schools are not a "grammar" in the sense most linguists use the term, as they are often prescriptive rather than descriptive.
Grammar is part of the general study of language called linguistics.

 Stochastic context-free grammar -- Facts, Info, and Encyclopedia article
SCFGs extend context-free grammars in the same way that (additional info and facts about hidden Markov model) hidden Markov models extend (additional info and facts about regular grammar) regular grammars.
This is equivalent to the probability of the SCFG generating the sequence, and is intuitively a measure of how consistent the sequence is with the given grammar.
The probability of a derivation (parse) is then the product of the probabilities of the productions used in that derivation; thus some derivations are more consistent with the stochastic grammar than others.

As an example of a context-free grammar, here is a specification of the context-free grammar for arithmetic expression.
The specification of the contex-free grammar for a language consists of four items, the specification of the terminal symbols of the language, the specification of the nonterminals, the productions or derivation rules, and the start symbol of the grammar.
A grammar is LL(1) (suitable for top-down parsing with one symbol of look ahead) iff it satisfies the following two rules.

 BioMed Central Full text Evaluation of several lightweight stochastic context-free grammars for RNA secondary structure prediction
Although one implementation of an SCFG mirror of the Zuker algorithm has been described [35], it used a structurally ambiguous grammar (it was not intended for secondary structure prediction per se; it was only used in summed Inside algorithm calculations where ambiguity doesn't matter, not in a CYK algorithm where ambiguity does matter).
It can be tricky to write grammars that are structurally unambiguous, and it appears to be difficult to prove that they are so, except in simple cases.
Once stacking correlations are included, four of the grammars (G6, G7, G8, and G6) have comparably good performance, at the cost of increasing parameter number to include the 16 × 16 parameters set for the three with stacking correlations.
