Weightreducing grammars and ultralinear languages
RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications - Informatique Théorique et Applications, Volume 38 (2004) no. 1, pp. 19-25.

We exhibit a new class of grammars with the help of weightfunctions. They are characterized by decreasing the weight during the derivation process. A decision algorithm for the emptiness problem is developed. This class contains non-contextfree grammars. The corresponding language class is identical to the class of ultralinear languages.
