Title: Constraints and Resources in Natural Language Syntax and Semantics

URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=1575862220
Series Title: Studies in Constraint-Based Lexicalism
Description:

This collection draws together recent work on constraint-based and
resource-sensitive approaches to the grammar of natural languages. Some of
the issues addressed are: extraction phenomena in a range of languages, the
syntax of nominal phrases, the role of argument structure, defining the
interface between syntax and morphology and between semantics and prosody,
quantifier scope, remnant movement, construction grammar, and formal and
computational aspects of grammar formalisms. This volume brings together
the leading linguists, logicians, and computer scientists working on
Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar and Categorial Grammar. Derived from
two recent conferences on Formal Grammar and Head-driven Phrase Structure
Grammar in Aix (1997) and Saarbrücken (1998), this volume represents the
most current work in these frameworks.
