I am not a linguist but I want to know if there are any parsing tools in existence that can help me do the following kind of thing:
Given a sentence like the one below I would like to generate many possible grammatical sentences via mechanism like (but not necessarily restricted to) wh movement.
"The Rolling Stones were formed in 1962"
Wh movement could generate sentences like
"When were the Rolling Stones formed?" "Where were the Rolling Stones formed?"
So take a sentence and be able to produce a number of questions which need not be the proper question. E.g in this case the proper question is when not where.
I am guessing there are ways of taking a question and using wh movement to generate the form of possible answers.
In general I'm interested in producing from a sentence many other sentences that are grammatical and with syntactic variety but maintaining something of the core sense of the original sentence. I realize that's vague but it doesn't have to be perfect.
