Hi all,

As part of my research on semantics construction for dependency grammars, I
have come across differences in the way various versions of dependency
grammar model certain dependencies.

In particular, there seems to be variation with respect to how the
following ''relations'' are modeled:

- the relation between an auxiliary and a lexicalized verb
- the relation between a preposition, the modified (verb / noun) and the
prepositional object
- the relation between determiners and nouns

As there is a vast amount of literature on dependency grammar, I would be
very grateful for pointers to these differences and pointers to the literature.

I will post a summary of the answers received.
