Meeting URL:

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Linguistic Theories; Semantics; Syntax; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The focus of LxGr is the interaction of lexis and grammar. The focus is informed by Halliday’s view of lexis and grammar as “complementary perspectives” (1991: 32), and his conception of the two as notional ends of a continuum (lexicogrammar), in that “if you interrogate the system grammatically you will get grammar-like answers and if you interrogate it lexically you get lexis-like answers” (1992: 64).
