In the age of IT, people are eager for an effective grammar check system that could help learners of English detect errors or get some feedback on their written work. Optimality Theory (OT), proposed by Prince & Smolensky (1993) for phonological studies in the first place, has been applied in computational phonology, and it has been shown that the basic assumptions and methods of OT can be formalized and implemented to the benefit of both research areas. This study attempts to present and explore the properties of OT-LFG that may be used for building an online grammar check system.
