Computational linguists of several research sites have joined forces in a collaborative effort aimed at deep linguistic processing of human language. The goal is the combination of linguistic and statistical processing methods for getting at the meaning of texts and utterances. The partners have adopted Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG) and Minimal Recursion Semantics (MRS), two highly advanced and influential models of formal linguistic analysis. They have also committed themselves to a shared format for grammatical representation and to a rigid scheme of evaluation.

The collaboration involves researchers from the following institutions:

The DELPH-IN collaboration is open to additional partners who share our ambitious goals and commitments and who can dedicate the necessary resources to the common task.
