Performance Grammars

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The idea of basing performance on rules in analogy with linguistic grammar goes back to Mathis Lussy [631]. In modern performance research, this terminology was recovered by Johan Sundberg and his school [1024]. We discuss the principles for a grammar of performance and give an overview of representative approaches to this theory.
