Purpose?  Command parsing?  Do you want it to be 
  A) natural language?  (OK, so you said not)
  B) english-like?
  C) context sensitive?
  D) precise?
  E) auto completing?
  F) abbreviatable?
  G) runtime extendable?

And in what language?

There's always LeX...

Do you need token matching against a noun-verb-adjective-conjunction set
with a runtime extendable lexicon?

Is it hosted by the server?  By a client?

And how skilled a programmer are you?
