Meeting Description:

Debrecen Thematic Workshop on Spatial and Temporal Relations in LFG

Institute of English and American Studies University of Debrecen, Hungary

April 1st, 2011

HunGram is the Hungarian Grammar subproject of the ParGram (Parallel Grammar) project. ParGram is a truly international cooperation of generative linguists using the theoretical framework of Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG) and aiming at developing automatic large-scale grammars on the XLE platform.

Invited Speaker:

Annie Zaenen (PARC, California)

This one-day thematic workshop will immediately follow the spring ParGram/ParSem meeting to be held at the Institute of English and American Studies, University of Debrecen, Hungary (March 28th – March 31st).

General information:


3rd Call for Papers:

Please note that the deadline for submission has been extended

Abstracts are solicited for 30-minute presentations (followed by 15-minute discussion periods) addressing syntactic, semantic, morphological and implementational issues pertaining to the treatment of spatial and temporal relations within the formal architecture of Lexical-Functional Grammar as well as in typological, formal, and computational work within the 'spirit of LFG' as a lexicalist approach to language employing a parallel, constraint-based framework. All semantic theories are welcome. We are particularly interested in presentations that integrate either the classic co-description approach or the f-structure rewrite/transfer approach recently pioneered by Crouch et al. in the form of Abstract Knowledge Representation (AKR).

Important Dates:

Abstract submission deadline: February 14th, 2011
Notification of acceptance/rejection by February 22nd, 2011
Workshop: April 1st, 2011
