This is just to let you know that the Stanford LFG web site has added a new department: LFG Morphosyntax - created and maintained by Louisa Sadler (louisa@essex.ac.uk) Louisa has very kindly responded to the demand for an overview of ongoing work in this very active area with some initial pages. Suggestions to additions and updates are very much welcomed, and should be directed to Louisa. She writes: "There is a very great deal of work in morphosyntax in LFG and this page cannot provide a comprehensive listing of even all the recent work (so apologies in advance for all omissions). Important themes in recent work include the independent contribution of morphology to functional structure, the relationship between inflectional morphology and syntax (and the notion of functional category), the interaction between morphology and syntax as external means of expression (including notions of competition and blocking) and the morpho-syntactic interface (including definitions of wordhood, and complex predication). "Some information about recent work on argument structure and lexical mapping theory is also available." ------------------ This is the fourth department of the section, "Current Resaerch Directions in LFG". The other three departments are: Optimal Syntax: LFG in an OT Setting (Joan Bresnan) Glue: Linear Logic for meaning assembly in LFG (Mary Dalrymple) DOP-LFG: probabilistic lexical-functional analysis (Ron Kaplan with Boris Cormons)
