Unlanguage Grammars and Their Uses, August 1977 R. A. Fraley

A new technique is presented for using context free grammars for the definition of programming languages. Rather than accumulating a number of specialized statement formats, generalized productions specify the format of all statements. A sample unlanguage grammar is presented, and the use of this grammar is described. Some of the difficulties in parsing the language are described.
