    In a companion paper [P.R.J. Asveld, Fuzzy context-free languages---Part 1: Generalized fuzzy context-free grammars, Theoret. Comp. Sci. (2005)] we used fuzzy context-free grammars in order to model grammatical errors resulting in erroneous inputs for robust recognizing and parsing algorithms for fuzzy context-free languages. In particular, this approach enables us to distinguish between small errors (``tiny mistakes'') and big errors (``capital blunders''). In this paper, we present some algorithms to recognize fuzzy context-free languages: particularly, a modification of Cocke-Younger-Kasami's algorithm and some recursive decent algorithms. Then we extend these recognition algorithms to corresponding parsing algorithms for fuzzy context-free languages. These parsing algorithms happen to be robust in some very elementary sense.
