Abstract / Description:The potential of sentence generators as engines
in Intelligent Computer-Assisted Language
Learning and teaching (ICALL) software
has hardly been explored. We sketch
the prototype of COMPASS, a system that
supports integrated writing and grammar
curricula for 10 to 14 year old elementary or
secondary schoolers. The system enables
first- or second-language teachers to design
controlled writing exercises, in particular of
the “sentence combining” variety. The system
includes facilities for error diagnosis
and on-line feedback. Syntactic structures
built by students or system can be displayed
as easily understood phrase-structure or dependency
trees, adapted to the student’s
level of grammatical knowledge. The heart
of the system is a specially designed generator
capable of lexically guided sentence generation,
of generating syntactic paraphrases,
and displaying syntactic structures visually.
