[developers] genre and lexical entries in PET

Hi Paul,

Yes, it is currently the case that the value of GENRE is not checked until a candidate analysis is tested for one of the root conditions after parsing.  It would be more efficient to impose a lexical filter that was sensitive to the values of GENRE for the root conditions specified at parser start-up, but this has not been implemented for any of the LKB, PET, or ACE (I don't know whether Glenn's agree parser does better).

Subject: [developers] genre and lexical entries in PET

Dear Developers,

I am noticing some lexical entries in charts which are not licensed by the start-symbols specified in the settings file using PET.

For example, when parsing (with $root_strict only), ‘s is resulting in be_c_is_cx (and others) which are defined as nonformal (via contracted_aux_word).

Is it actually the case that genre is not considered until downstream of lexical processing?

Thanks for any insight,
