I have no doubt that this is all correct and wonderful information (well, I am a trusting kinda guy). However it really does need to be presented in a form so that someone who doesn't already know all about the subject can get an appreciation of what its all about. At the moment its just a list of gobbledygook. --DamianJohn 17:52, 9 April 2012 (EDT)

I agree, Damian, and it would be great if you could improve it!--Andy Schlafly 17:54, 9 April 2012 (EDT)
Sorry Andy, I've had a quick look around on the internet and I can't make head nor tail of the subject (Us lawyers are pretty hopeless like that aren't we :) ). Anything I added would be just a copy paste, which I am loathe to do without any understanding of what I am doing. It appears the original author has gone, but I wonder if there is someone out there, perhaps skilled in computer programming who could explain it? --DamianJohn 18:00, 9 April 2012 (EDT)
Damian, no problem, User:RolandPlankton has already indicated an interest in improving it.
That's great you're an attorney! I've been planning on adding a whole bunch of new legal material, such as building a category about rules of evidence, and you might have an interest in that.--Andy Schlafly 18:10, 9 April 2012 (EDT)
Actually I would love to get involved with that. As it happens I am currently retraining to become what we call a "Duty Solicitor", which is the equivalent of your "public defender" (though I understand it is not so well remunerated in the US). In the last couple of years I have spent more and more time in Court and I would like to think that I have a fairly good grasp on evidence law, particularly in reference to criminal matters. No doubt there will be minor differences between the US and NZ, but they are probably no more than the differences that each individual State has with each other. --DamianJohn 18:18, 9 April 2012 (EDT)

I'm currently working on Chomsky hierarchy, of which a context-free grammar is a member. I reckon on another one or two weeks for that. The next item on my list is context-free grammar, and I'm certainly aiming to make it more accessible (see my other work at programming language and compiler for examples of my style). Any suggestions for improvement are of course welcome. RolandPlankton 14:07, 10 April 2012 (EDT)

My talk page has a list of articles I'm interested in improving, which may give you some idea of where I think I can contribute. Any suggestions for related articles are welcome. RolandPlankton 15:10, 10 April 2012 (EDT)

On looking more carefully at Context-Free Grammar I see that the given example is actually from a much simpler regular grammar, so I presume someone just blindly copied it from somewhere. More work in store to find a good example. RolandPlankton 11:04, 12 April 2012 (EDT)
