ISTR = "I seem to remember"

For the meaning of this and other acronyms check out the netlingo dictionary 
at http://www.netlingo.com/.

I have tried to reproduce your error message, and I find that if I execute 
Notation/tutorial/NotationSymbolizeAndInfixNotation without first of all 
executing the <<Notation` at the top of the tutorial, then I get the 
following message

Syntax::sntxb: Expression cannot begin with "\!\(\(x_\)\(\ 
\)SubscriptBox[\(\[CirclePlus]\), \(n_\)]\(\ \)\(y_\)\(\ 
\)\)\[DoubleLongLeftRightArrow] gplus[x_,y_,n_]".

Syntax::sntxi: Incomplete expression; more input is needed.

This might be the cause of your problem.
