The Grammatical Framework (=GF) is a grammar formalism based on type theory.
It consists of

* a special-purpose programming language
* a compiler of the language
* a generic grammar processor

The compiler reads GF grammars from user-provided files, and the
generic grammar processor performs various tasks with the grammars:

* generation
* parsing
* translation
* type checking
* computation
* paraphrasing
* random generation
* syntax editing

GF particularly addresses four aspects of grammars:

* multilinguality (parallel grammars for different languages)
* semantics (semantic conditions of well-formedness, semantic
properties of expressions)
* grammar engineering (modularity, abstractions, libraries)
* embeddability in programs written in other languages (C,C++,
Haskell, Java, JavaScript)
