Meeting Description:

Thirteenth International Lexical Functional Grammar Conference
July 4-6, 2008
University of Sydney, Australia

The 13th International Lexical Functional Grammar Conference will be hosted by
the University of Sydney from July 4th to 6th 2008. This LFG conference is one
in a series of linguistics conferences, and will be followed by the Australian
Linguistics Institute (http://www.lingfest.arts.usyd.edu.au/).

LFG 2008 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
collaboration among 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
following sites:

The following is the tentative programme of the Thirteenth International Lexical
Functional Grammar Conference. Please visit the conference website at:
