Voices in my head
Posted by Polonius on 25 March, 2007
A couple of weeks ago, Edward the Bonobo mentioned the concept of a generative grammar, something I’d never come across before. Then, through WTF, I came across SCIgen, which uses the related concept of a context-free grammar. Today, while trying to get my head around some concepts of musical theory, I followed a series of links around Wikipedia from Mixolydian mode via Musical mode, Key (music) and Chord progression to Generative grammar again. Clearly the Fates are conspiring to guide me towards this concept. Perhaps generative grammars are the basis of the project that’s going to advance my understanding of Perl?
