We propose an interactive development environment for the automatic generation of natural language analyzers from definite clause grammars. Our system has benn baptized GALENA, and it is organized around a generator of logical push-down automata, which are interpreted in dynamic programming. An extensible user graphical interface provides a complete set of customization and trace facilities for the system. In relation to previous approaches, our proposal guarantees operational completeness and correctness at the time that efficiency increases.
Keywords: Definite Clause Grammar, Push-Down Automaton, Language Prototyping.
