Hi there,
Just out of curiosity, I'd like to ask you about any resources that you 
may know about grammars. There are many good books about compilers, 
programming languages etc, but since the subject is a large one, most of 
them contains a lot of information which are not focused on building 
grammars. There are endless pages of information about parser 
generators, ebnf notation etc.. but I have not seen any document that 
considers grammar building as its focus. Maybe I'm looking at the wrong 
places, or I'm not able to see what's in front of me, but in either 
case, you can help me, if you know any good resources for the task. I am 
looking for a resource that abstracts the grammar building process from 
the background theory or tools. (If such a resource exists).
Any ideas?

Best Regards
