Abstract:

The Computerized Comprehensibility System CCS generates a critique of the comprehensibility of a technical document, using techniques and results from artificial intelligence and cognitive psychology. This report is a guide for the maintainer or developer of CCS. It is not intended as a tutorial on the mechanisms used in CCS, but to allow the qualified programmer to rapidly understand the internal mechanisms of CCS in order to correct, modify, or extend the grammar and criticism rules in CCS. This report contains the following sections An interview of CCS, a description of each of the components of the CCS system, including the syntax for the various representations used in the systems, a series of maintenance examples in which the parser and semantics module of the system are extended to handle new kinds of structures and new criticism rules are added to CCS, and a complete list and explanation of the criticisms produced by the current version. kr
