About the Authors
  • This book explores a variety of central issues in the framework of Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), a major theory of syntactic representation that is becoming increasingly dominant, particularly in the domain of natural language computation. According to this theory, certain structurally key words ("heads") in any human language determine both the syntactic form and the semantic interpretaton of the sentences they appear in. The separate chapters consider problematic phenomena in German, Japanese and English and suggest important extensions of, and revisions to, the current picture of HPSG.

    • This book contains a concise overview of one of the two major frameworks for natural language analysis
    • The individual chapters provide detailed empirical analyses of a very wide variety of languages
    • Most of the material, though designed primarily for specialists, is also accessible to advanced undergraduate students with only a modest amount of extra background
