Logic Programming for Linguistics: A short introduction to Prolog, and Logic Grammars with Constraints as an easy way to Syntax and Semantics

Henning Christiansen


This article gives a short introduction on how to get started with logic programming in Prolog that does not require any previous programming experience. The presentation is aimed at students of linguistics, but it does not go deeper into linguistics than any student who has some ideas of what a computer is, can follow the text. I cannot, of course, cover all aspects of logic programming in this text, and so we give references to other sources with more details.
