Abstract : The thesis presents an algorithm to recognize and translate sets of character strings specified by canonic systems. The ability of canonic systems to define the context sensitive features of strings and to specify their translation allows the algorithm to recognize and translate real computer languages. It is also applicable in other language systems. Canonic systems are discussed, and several examples of their use are given. The algorithm is described, and examples of canonic translation are presented using a program implementation. (Author)
