I'll introduce attribute grammars using the syntax of the utrecht university attribute grammar system or uuag for short the uuag system takes a file containing an attribute grammar definition and generates a haskell module containing semantic functions , determined by the attribute grammar. An attribute grammar is a generative grammar that can describe both the context-free and the context-sensitive syntax of a language attribute grammars add context-sensitive information to cfgs by transporting semantic information in a controlled fashion up and down the parse tree. Integrating attribute grammar and functional programming language features ted kaminski and eric van wyk department of computer science and engineering.

Attribute grammar for declarations we now extend the above bnf grammar to an attribute grammar by introducing a type attribute for the symbols and giving a set of semantic rules for calculating the values of the attributes. Attribute grammar syntax highlighting for the utrecht university attribute grammar system. Evaluators for attribute grammars ralph c merkle abstract it is possible to evaluate an arbitrary attribute grammar in an amount of primary memory bounded by the depth of the parsing.
