Qs: Looking for Large Scale English LFG Parser/Grammar
Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

I am currently a 4th year PhD student at the University of Illinois at Chicago who is working towards a thesis in Discourse Parsing. I was wondering if there are any freely downloadable LFG parsers in English with a wide coverage grammar that I could use for my research work. XLE seems to be a popular one but is proprietory. If anyone has developed any LFG parsers/grammars for English or knows of any, please let do let me know.
Thank you in advance.
