Dissertation Abstract:

The LinGO Grammar Matrix provides a foundation for building grammars of
natural languages in HPSG. It includes a web-based questionnaire that
allows a linguist to describe a natural language, and then creates a
starter grammar for that language based on the answers. In this
dissertation, I describe improvements I have made to the typological
coverage of this system, including support for core case marking, agreement
in person, number, and gender, direct-inverse languages, and a lexicon
containing an arbitrarily large number of lexical types, lexical items, and
inflectional morphemes.
