We consider, as an alternative to traditional approaches for describing non-context-free languages, the use
of grammars in which application of grammar rules themselves control the creation or modification of grammar rules.
This principle is shown to capture, in a concise way, standard example languages that are
considered as prototype representatives of non-context-free phenomena in natural languages.
We define a grammar formalism with these characteristics and show how it can be implemented in logic programming
in a surprisingly straightforward way, compared with the expressive power.
It is also shown how such adaptable grammars can be applied for describing meta-level architectures that include their own explicit meta-languages for defining new syntax
