Experiments were undertaken to determine the applicability of a computer program for automatic syntactic analysis to the systematic discovery of ambiguities in textual material. Specific application of this program was made to portions of the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty. Results, though promising, indicate that such applications are not now economically feasible for large volumes of text.
