We present a grammatical approach to problem solving. It supports formal software specification using attribute grammars, from which a rapid prototype can be generated as well the incremental software development. Domain concepts and relationships among them have to be identified from a problem statement and represented as a context-free grammar. The obtained context-free grammar describes the syntax of a domain-specific language whose semantics is the same as the functionality of the system under implementation. The semantics of this language is then described using attribute grammars from which a compiler is automatically generated. The execution of a particular program written in a domain-specific language corresponds to the execution of a prototype of a system on a particular use-case.
