The 14th International Lexical Functional Grammar Conference will be held at
Trinity College, Cambridge, from July 13th to 16th, 2009.
LFG 2009 welcomes work within the formal architecture of Lexical- Functional
Grammar as well as typological, formal, and computational work within the
'spirit of LFG' as a lexicalist approach to language employing a parallel,
constraint-based framework. The conference aims to promote interaction and
researchers interested in non-derivational approaches to grammar, where grammar
is seen as the interaction of (perhaps violable) constraints from multiple
levels of structuring, including those of syntactic categories, grammatical
relations, semantics and discourse.
Further information about LFG as a syntactic theory is available at the
Submissions: Talks and Posters
The main conference sessions will involve 45-minute talks (30 min. + 15 min.
discussion), and poster/system presentations. Contributions can focus on results
from completed as well as ongoing research, with an emphasis on novel
approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives, whether descriptive, theoretical,
formal or computational. Presentations should describe original, unpublished work.
As in previous years, we are hoping to hold a special session that will give
students the chance to present recent PhD dissertations (or other student
research dissertations). The dissertations must be completed by the time of the
conference, and they should be made publicly accessible (e.g., on the World Wide
Web). The talks in this session should provide an overview of the main original
points of the dissertation; the talks will be 20 minutes, followed by a
10-minute discussion period. The International LFG Association (ILFGA) will pay
the conference fees for the students presenting at the student session.
Students should note that the main sessions are certainly also open to student

trouble converting your

While the number of submissions is not restricted, at most one single-authored
submission or two first-authored submissions per person will be accepted for
oral presentation. Authors may want to keep this in mind when stating their
preferences concerning the mode of presentation of their submissions.
