Download PDF by Terence Parr: Language Implementation Patterns: Create Your Own

Knowing tips on how to create domain-specific languages (DSLs) can provide you an immense productiveness enhance. rather than writing code in a general-purpose programming language, you could first construct a customized language adapted to make you effective in a selected domain.

the bottom line is knowing the typical styles came across throughout language implementations. Language layout styles identifies and condenses the commonest layout styles, offering pattern implementations of each.

The trend implementations use Java, however the styles themselves are thoroughly normal. a few of the implementations use the well known ANTLR parser generator, so readers will locate this publication a superb resource of ANTLR examples to boot. yet this e-book will profit a person drawn to imposing languages, despite their software of selection. different language implementation books specialise in compilers, that you hardly ever want on your lifestyle. in its place, Language layout styles indicates you styles you should use for all types of language applications.

You'll learn how to create configuration dossier readers, facts readers, model-driven code turbines, source-to-source translators, resource analyzers, and interpreters. each one bankruptcy teams comparable layout styles and, in every one development, you'll get hands-on adventure by means of construction an entire pattern implementation. by the point you end the publication, you'll know the way to resolve most typical language implementation problems.

The question remains, though, why CP fails to move to a preverbal position with the VP-remnant. In his discussion of Lokaa, Baker (2005) simply proposes that CPs are extraposed before VP movement. Biberauer and Roberts (2008), on the other hand, propose that CPs are radically spelled out when the vP phase is complete: this entails that the CP is removed from the syntactic computation prior to vP movement, being linearized immediately, with the result that it is, as the first constituent to be sent to the interfaces, spelled out in final position.

Where morphemes are not bound, however, they can diverge from the universal default word order, as is the case in French. Thus Emonds shows that French compounds are head-initial only where they contain free morphemes, which can project further. He gives an extensive list of compounds of this type, including: 26 Theresa Biberauer and Michelle Sheehan (25) English right-headed compounds tanker truck video cassette bedroom suburb French left-headed compounds camion citerne cassette vidéo ville dortoir The relevant trigger for head–complement order in such domains is, of course, stress, which is uniformly on the right in French.

Also Hawkins this volume). In this more recent work, Hawkins has moved towards an explicitly functional explanation for the CCH, based on his Performance–Grammar Correspondence Hypothesis (PGCH), which claims that languages have grammaticalized word orders which are efficient from a processing perspective. From this perspective, principles of processing efficiency such as Minimize Domains (MiD) (Hawkins 2004: 31, this volume) favour head adjacency as well as optional processes such as extraposition.
