Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG) & XLE

On this page we offer you some insight into the world of Lexical-Functional Grammar, along with forwarding links for more information.

Lexical-Functional Grammar - short LFG - is a constraint-based theory of generative grammar. In contrast to other generative frameworks (e.g. GB or Minimalism), LFG is non-transformational. Important for us Computational Linguists is the fact that LFG-based grammars can be implemented.
