Hey sis, I moved the topic to what I thought was the appropriate section.

The word "Parsing" is actually a word which is used in computer science but it has the same basic meaning as it does in linguistics.

It's basically the process of analyzing a sentence and breaking it down to its simplest forms and components and examining each part separately to understand the overall meaning. The word is never used in conversation these days because it's considered old and sophisticated.

an example of it would be.... "I faced a great deal of hardship parsing your mysterious poem"

parsing ultimately means understand.

Hope this helps smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

parsing is to describe the grammar of a word when it is in a particular sentence, or the grammar of the whole sentence
