Maurice Gross, who died in December 2001, was a pioneer and leading
thinker in the field of modern linguistics. Long before computers
could facilitate large-scale, lexically-based language study, he and
his team began building an exhaustive, empirically-based inventory of
the "lexicon-grammar" of French which, thirty years later, still
remains the most complete syntax-based lexicon available. Researchers
all over the world have adopted the Gross model of description, which
serves as a computational model for any language. As can be seen in
the contributions in this volume, it has been applied to languages as
different as Arabic, Chinese, English, Greek or Korean (as well as the
major Romance languages, of course). In this volume the reader will
also find a number of articles by eminent linguists who were close
friends of Maurice Gross, and frequently in dialogue with him on
linguistic issues. No matter whether they shared his theoretical
views, or his particular empirical methods of description, they each
had great respect for his work, especially for the close-grained
linguistic analysis which has set a benchmark for future generations.
