This document is intended as a reminder of the standard vocabulary of parsing. I put defining uses of terms in boldface, for easy skimming. A reader who feels comfortable with parsing terminology, can skip this document entirely.
All the definitions here are consistent with at least some of the textbook definitions, and are in that sense standard. But no effort is made to cover the full range of standard meaning, or even to give the most common meaning. The focus is on the meaning of the terms as used in the Marpa documentation.
If you've never looked into parsing before, you'll probably find this document too terse. As an introduction, I reccommend Mark Jason Dominus's excellent chapter on parsing in the Perl context. Online, Wikipedia is an excellent place to start.
