Abstract:

Lexical-Functional Syntax is the definitive text for
Lexical-Functional Grammar in the field of syntax. Complete with
integrated pedagogy and problem sets to support the text, this book
provides an accessible, empirically motivated treatment of the
mathematical architecture of LFG. It also covers the theoretical
linguistic ideas that LFG can model, and discusses the wide range of
crosslinguistic syntactic phenomena to which it has been applied.


The volume is essential to students and researchers who wish to look
outside the Chomskyan framework for syntax. It shows why the Chomskyan
formal architecture of structural transformations is less attractive
for certain types of syntactic phenomena than an architecture of
imperfect correspondences between parallel information structures. The
book also illustrates how the best ideas from the transformational
framework can be captured in a natural way. It gives a clear
introduction to the fundamentals of a feature-logic based framework
for syntax and provides extensive discussion of crosslinguistic
applications, of particular interest to practitioners of feature-logic
based approaches such as HPSG and Categorical Unification Grammar.
