I am an admitted object-oriented fanatic. I have been designing and implementing object-oriented
software for more than twenty years. When I started designing and implementing object-oriented
, I encountered many detractors. They would say things like “The object model isn’t
complete,” “You can’t have public variables,” “The development environment doesn’t work well
with objects,” “Objects and vector operations don’t mix,” “Object-oriented code is too hard to
debug,” and “MATLAB objects are too slow.
Exception handling is the process of responding to the occurrence, during computation, of exceptions – anomalous or exceptional events requiring special processing – often changing the normal flow of program execution. It is provided by specialized programming language constructs or computer hardware mechanisms.
I propose a uniform approach to the elimination of redundancy in CCG lexicons, where grammars incorporate inheritance hierarchies of lexical types, deﬁned over a simple, feature-based category description language. The resulting formalism is partially ‘constraint-based’, in that the category notation is interpreted against an underlying set of tree-like feature structures. I argue that this version of CCG subsumes a number of other proposed category notations devised to allow for the construction of more efﬁcient lexicons.
