Abstract

We present an algorithm for the inference of some Multiple Context-Free Grammars from Membership and Equivalence Queries, using the Minimally Adequate Teacher model of Angluin. This is an extension of the congruence based methods for learning some Context-Free Grammars proposed by Clark (ICGI 2010). We define the natural extension of the syntactic congruence to tuples of strings, and demonstrate we can efficiently learn the class of Multiple Context-Free Grammars where the non-terminals correspond to the congruence classes under this relation.
