The paper is concerned with some problems of system analysis.

The problems are not mathematically defined. They are concerned with the syntactic parsing of large language corpuses, which are not artificially restricted. (PASP).

After the discussion of some strategies for PASP developed in the past, a more complete strategy is proposed. Major characteristics of this strategy are :

The ad hoc character of some parts of it

The use of a linear string grammar

The definition of probability rules

The translation of the probability rules into a priori rules for the string grammar

The context sensitivity

The flexibility of the system
