This is the file README for xyling.sty.  For full documentation, read

xyling.sty is a set of macros based on xypic.sty, considered to make
it easier to draw the kind of graphical objects that are frequently
used in linguistics, such as, first of all, phrase structure trees,
but also phonological structures. It is highly flexible and can easily
be extended to any kind of schematic object that combines text with
lines, boxes etc.

Requirements: xypic

xyling – Draw syn­tac­tic trees, etc., for lin­guis­tics lit­er­a­ture, us­ing xy-pic

The macros in this pack­age model the con­struc­tion of lin­guis­tic tree struc­tures as a gen­uinely graph­i­cal prob­lem: they con­tain two types of ob­jects, BRANCHES and NODE LABELS, and these are po­si­tioned rel­a­tive to a GRID. It is es­sen­tial that each of these three el­e­ments is con­structed in­de­pen­dent of the other two, and hence they can be mod­i­fied with­out un­wanted side ef­fects. The macros are based on the xy-pic pack­age.
