This paper gives a brief introduction to a particular machine learning method known as inductive logic programming. It is argued that this method, unlike many current statistically based machine learning methods, implies a view of grammar learning that bears close affinity to the views linguists have of the logical problem of language acquisition, Two experiments in grammar learning using this technique are described, using a unification grammar formalism, and positive-only data.
