The link grammar system assigns a syntactic structure to natural language text. It is a dictionary-based system. Each word in the dictionary is associated with a set of links. A link ending with ‘+’ implies that word has to make that link with some word to its right and similarly ‘-’ stands for a link with a word to its left. A typical entry in the dictionary is man : D- & (O- or S+)"
