Qs: Adjectives and Explanation; Looking for English LFG Parser

Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.org>

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.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 1: Adjectives and Explanation

Subject: Adjectives and Explanation

About a year ago, I ended my paper ''Good Intentions and Actual Deeds: A
response to my critics'' (Lingua 116/4: 523-542) with the remark that the
model in Bouchard (2002) provides a level of explanation which is
unattainable for analyses set in the Minimalist Program or in alternative
theories of generative syntax—in particular concerning the distribution and
interpretation of adjectives inside nominal expressions.

I have kept my eyes open for studies dealing with adjectives, but I haven't
seen any work that meets the challenge. Of course, there is a staggering
amount of linguistic works published every year, and it may very well be
that some paper on the subject escaped my notice. Has anyone read an
analysis of adjectives that comes close to what I am looking for? I will
post a summary.

I need your comment about English grammar and LFG parser to my thesis.
A bottom-up parsing is used to build LFG parser(I will use a Prolog
programming). Please advise me about LFG parser and English grammar to use
in system.

Thank you so much,
