Meeting Description: The LFG14 conference aims to promote interaction and collaboration among
researchers interested in non-derivational approaches to grammar, where
grammar is seen as the interaction of (perhaps violable) constraints from
multiple levels of structuring, including those of syntactic categories,
grammatical relations, semantics and discourse.

Further information about LFG as a syntactic theory is available at the
following site:

LFG14 Invited Speakers:

Rachel Nordlinger (The University of Melbourne)

LFG14 will feature a special topic 'Language Documentation and Linguistic
Theory' which will be the focus of the invited talks and a panel during the

LFG14 will be immediately followed by a workshop on 'The Syntax and
Information Structure of Unbounded Dependencies' on 20 July
