I apologize if this is the incorrect forum for this request, but these
seem to be the most logical groups for posting on the net.
I am looking to buy or license yacc source for an english language parser
for development in a product. Perfection is not required.
Please send pointers to research, school projects, or existing products
via email, or contact me at the phone numbers or address below.

[It is my impression that people gave up trying to parse natural language
using context-free methods in about 1966. One of the examples in the
O'Reilly "lex & yacc" book is a tiny English parser, but by the time we
get to a dozen rules or so it becomes evident that it's never going to parse
more than a tiny grammar with a tiny vocabulary. -John]
