In MiMo2 grammar fragments of English, Dutch, and Spanish have been implemented. As testing and development methodology, the fragments have been defined to cover a specific text type, the one of international news items of teletext. As is well-known from studies on sublanguages (e.g. ), texts from a restricted domain show a greater `adherence to systematic usage' than the standard language, which is a useful restriction in the development of accurate grammars. As it happens, the text type of teletext is rather close to the standards of written language as traditionally studied (mainly grammatical declarative sentences, little jargon and ellipsis etc.). However, it also has some frequent constructions which are highly restricted in standard language, such as a restricted type of apposition of proper nouns (president Bush vs. dissident Ajrikjan), which has been analysed as well.
Despite the relatively `standard' character of the text type, much pioneering work in linguistics was necessary due to the fact that there is not yet a large literature on language description using unification grammars. This is especially true for languages other than English. Detailed analyses of non-trivial phenomena will be given in the subsequent section.
