E → E - E

What distinguishes data from information?

Meaningful structuring

Explore the Chomsky hierarchy which divides grammar into 4 types, including unrestricted grammar, context-sensitive grammar, context-free grammar, and regular grammar. Learn about parse trees and derivation trees that represent the syntactic structure of a string based on context-free grammar.
