LFG17 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)
multiple levels of structuring, including those of syntactic categories,
semantics and discourse.

The main conference sessions will involve 45-minute talks (30 min + 15 min
