A general statistical method for improving the performance of compiled code is presented, along with its preliminary application and evaluation to three sources of non-determinism that arise with natural language processing in ALE (Carpenter and Penn 1996), a logic programming language based on the logic of typed feature structures (Carpenter 1992).
