A translation of one of the more interesting recent (1961) Soviet publications dealing with structural and applied linguistics. This is one of several areas of language research relating to Rand's study of automatic language-data processing. Two interrelated programs are presented for the automatic analysis of Russian sentences, or of sentences in any language characterized by grammatic agreement among certain word classes that must be tested to derive the proper syntactic structure for each sentence being processed.
