We describe a GB parser implemented along the lines of those written by Fong  and Dorr . The phrase structure recovery component is an implementation of Tomita's generalized LR parsing algorithm (described in ), with recursive control flow (similar to Fong's implementation). The major principles implemented are government, binding, bounding, trace theory, case theory, θ-theory, and barriers. The particular version of GB theory we use is that described by Haegeman . The parser is minimal in the sense that it implements the major principles needed in a GB parser, and has fairly good coverage of linguistically interesting portions of the English language.
