All issues refer to the EBNF Specification of Scala in Chapter A of The Scala Language Specification Version 2.9:
(1) The Definition >symbolLiteral ::= '''plainid< should be changed to
>symbolLiteral ::= '''plainid< as in the Definition of characterLiteral
(2) The Definition >comment ::='/* "any sequence of characters" '*/' ..." is fails to mention nested comments
(3) The Definition >Block ::= {Blockstat semi} [ResultExpr]< should be changed to
>Block ::= Blockstat {semi Blockstat} [ResultExpr]< which allows "{}" as a BlockExpr
(4) The Definition >ClassParams ::= ClassParam {'' ClassParam}< should be changed to
>ClassParams ::= ClassParam {',' ClassParam}<
(5) The Definition >NameValuePair ::=...< should be omitted since it is not used
