FOURTEENTH INTERNATIONAL LEXICAL FUNCTIONAL GRAMMAR CONFERENCE

July 13-16, 2009

Trinity College, Cambridge, United Kingdom


CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

The 14th International Lexical Functional Grammar Conference will be
held at Trinity College, Cambridge, from July 13th to 16th, 2009.

Registration is now open at http://www.lfg09.net.

Please note that early registration will close on Thursday, June 25,  
2009.

LFG 2009 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:
