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
