Renarrating Linguistic Architecture: A Case Study
We study the use of megamodels (models of linguistic architecture) for presenting software language engineering scenarios. Megamodels and techniques similar to them are frequently found in situations when a linguistic architecture needs to be understood without the implicit knowledge that was originally present, and in situations when such knowledge needs to be propagated. In this paper we specifically address the possibility of using one megamodel to tell several related stories — that is, to renarrate it. Various renarrations can address different aspects of the megamodel, without cluttering the reader’s view with irrelevant details. The renarration method is presented with the case study of a software language engineering technique of guided grammar convergence, and MegaL as a metamegamodel.
