Abstract : The paper gives a description of the MIND Grammar-Rule Language (MGRL), including parsing procedure and grammar rules. MGRL is the formalism for the grammar input to the MIND syntactic analysis component, currently being programmed for the IBM 360/65. MIND (Management of Information through Natural Discourse) is a system consisting of nested and chained modules of high-level programming language statements designed to meet the need for fast and accurate information transactions between senior command, control, and policymaking personnel of the Air Force and other services, and large, heterogeneous, loosely formatted information banks.
