Cross-serial dependencies

Your regular reminder that natural language isn't context-free.

Cross-serial dependencies is a Mastodon bot created by Serin Delaunay.

This bot posts Swiss German sentences with English translations. The sentences are based on a formal language described in Shieber (1985)* which show sthat the context-free class of formal languages are not sufficient to describe the syntax of all natural languages.
