Abstract:We investigate the bidirectional application of grammar productions -- i.e., using the productions in the reversed direction too -- to linear basic grammars. As in the case of regularly controlled bidirectional context-free grammars (or RCB grammars), we provide bidirectional linear basic grammars with a regular control language over the rules (i.e., productions and their corresponding reductions). Our main result shows that under the so-called RS/B/f-mode of derivation, bidirectionality gives rise to a dramatic increase in generating power compared with (regularly controlled unidirectional) linear basic grammars.
