Title: Studies in Contemporary Phrase Structure Grammar
Edited By: Georgia M Green
Robert D. Levine
Description:

This book explores a variety of central issues in the framework of
Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), a major theory of syntactic
representation that is becoming increasingly dominant, particularly in the
domain of natural language computation. According to this theory, certain
structurally key words ("heads") in any human language determine both the
syntactic form and the semantic interpretation of the sentences they appear
in. The separate chapters consider problematic phenomena in German,
Japanese and English and suggest important extensions of, and revisions to,
the current picture of HPSG.
