Title: Lexical-Functional Grammar parser XLFG5
Submitter: Lionel Clément
Description: XLFG5 is a recently released Lexical-Functional Grammar Parser

The XLFG5 parser is an online service, which can be accessed from a web
browser on a computer connected to the internet.
It is intended for teaching and research purposes, or can be used out of
simple curiosity. XLFG5 is suited both to beginner level and advanced level
LFG courses.

It can be accessed at the following URL

An important effort was made to make XLFG efficient and easy to use: it
handles large grammars and long sentences efficiently and the results are
displayed in an easily readable format, even when some of the grammars
constraints have been violated.

Documentation is available in English and French.
