An excellent text on denotational semantics is David Schmidt's _Denotational
Semantics: A Methodology for Language Development_. Allyn and Bacon had been
publishing Schmidt's book, but I think someone else (William C. Brown?) is
publishing it now. My copy says "copyright: 1986".
A good description of one approach to using attribute grammars is Thomas
Reps's and Tim Teitelbaum's _The Synthesizer Generator: A System for
Constructing Language Based Editors_ (c. 1989, Springer-Verlag). The book
describes the Synthesizer in detail, but it also discusses AGs and gives
