What is COMPASS?

Via drag-and-drop dialogues, COMPASS (the acronyom stands for COMbinatorial and Paraphrastic Assembly of Sentence Structure) allows users to freely select wordforms from a lexicon and to combine them into phrases and sentences.

The core component of COMPASS is a natural-language generator that, for every new word the user wishes to attach to the current string (as an extension of this string or as a replacement of a substring), checks whether this tentative attachment is grammatically well-formed or not.
