  abstract =     "Preferential language biases which are introduced when
                 using Tree-Adjoining Grammars in Grammatical Evolution
                 affect the distribution of generated derivation
                 structures, and as such, present difficulties when
                 designing initialisation methods. Similar initial
                 populations allow for a fairer comparison between
                 different GP methods. This work proposes methods for
                 dealing with these biases and examines their effect on
                 performance over four well known benchmark problems. In
                 addition, a comparison is performed with a previous
                 study that did not employ similar phenotype
                 distributions in their initial populations. It is found
                 that the use of this form of initialisation has a
                 positive effect on performance.",
