[edit] Summary


TG/2 stands for a new generation of template-based generators. The system is organized as a classical production system, separating the generation rules from their interpreter. Generation rules are defined as condition-action pairs. They can represent not only templates but also context-free grammar rules, using category symbols. Integrating these rule types into a single formalism allows for a shallow modelling of language where this proves sufficient, or for more fine-grained models whenever necessary. The interpreter consists of the standard three-step processing cycle: determine the set of applicable rules, select one from this set, and execute it. The TG/2 system is used in the generators TEMSIS and COSMA.
