Phonological change and grammaticalization in HPSG: The case of French final consonants

Jesse Tseng
2009 Proceedings of the International Conference on Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar  
The diachronic evidence is presented in detail, and interpreted as two main transitions, first from Old French to Middle French, then from Middle French to the modern language.  ...  This paper explores the use of HPSG for modeling historical phonological change and grammaticalization, focusing on the evolution of the pronunciation of word-final consonants in Modern French.  ...  see in (26), only one contextual constraints is still in force at the lexical level in ModFr, it does not refer directly to phonological information, but to the abstract feature LTRIG.  ...

Grammar and context in Functional Discourse Grammar

Kees Hengeveld, J. Lachlan Mackenzie
2014 Pragmatics: Quarterly Publication of the International Pragmatics Association  
This article presents a proposal for the organization of the Contextual Component in Functional Discourse Grammar.  ...  A guiding principle in this proposal is that, given the fact that Functional Discourse Grammar is a theory of grammar, the Contextual Component should provide the information that is necessary for a proper  ...  In FDG, all Levels have internal hierarchical layering, and each Layer forms its own pushdown stack within the Discoursal information.  ...

Reinforcing negation: The case of Italian

Danièle Godard, Jean-Marie Marandin
2006 Proceedings of the International Conference on Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar  
We study the formal and pragmatic properties of the ˋreinforced negation construction' in Italian, which, unlike the regular negative sentence, contains both non and an n-word in preverbal position.  ...  On the one hand, this construction relies on a more general construction (positive or negative), which is pragmatically associated with reprise assertion, on the other hand, it uses non without the usual  ...  An HPSG Grammar of Italian Negation In this section, we propose a grammar for Italian negation, which integrates both the regular and the reinforced forms.  ...

Nominal head-marking constructions

Andreas Kathol
2002 Proceedings of the International Conference on Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar  
A separate mapping is responsible for relating nouns (possessed or unpossessed) to fully case-inflected word-level expressions.  ...  In such cases, the head is a case-inflected pronominal head that takes a full noun phrase as an optional specifier.  ...  As a result, periphrastic oblique case marking with inanimate nouns, such as in (25), is ruled out and the grammar forces the expression of case on inanimate nouns directly, as in (23) above. (25) *tóóta  ...

From Contextual Grammars to Range Concatenation Grammars

Pierre Boullier
2004 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
Though the eld of natural language processing is one of the major aims that has led to the de nition of contextual grammars, very little was made on that subject.  ...  One reason is certainly the lack of e cient parsers for contextual languages.  ...  In other words, CGs are a kind of two-level grammars since some other mechanism is needed to de ne the selector languages.  ...

The interaction between context and grammar in functional discourse grammar

Nuria Alturo, Evelien Keizer, Lluís Payrató
2014 Pragmatics: Quarterly Publication of the International Pragmatics Association  
These first two papers present two rather different views on which information belongs in the Contextual Component.  ...  (in which case the State-of-Affairs is treated in grammar as Property); (ii) play the same role in the State-of-Affairs (in which case the State-of-Affairs is treated as a classification or identification  ...  The overall approach is a functional-cognitive one; more specifically she works within the framework of Functional Discourse Grammar. She has published widely on the noun phrase in English  ...

Grammar, context and the hearer

Riccardo Giomi

ANAPHORA: COGNITIVE GRAMMAR ACCOUNT VS. GENERATIVE GRAMMAR ACCOUNT

KEN-ICHI TAKAMI
1999 English Linguistics  
Introduction The book under review proposes a model of constraints on pronominal anaphora in English not only at the sentence level but also at the discourse level within the framework of Cognitive Grammar  ...  Empirical Problems In generative grammar, a wide range of sentence-internal anaphora facts has been explored over the last three decades.  ...  To sum up section 4.2, I have pointed out four cases of sentence-internal pronominal and bound anaphora that would pose serious problems for the reference point model.  ...

Grammar: A Complex Structure. A Linguistic Description of Esperanto in Functional Discourse Grammar

Wim Jansen
2015 Interdisciplinary Description of Complex Systems  
Attention is paid to linguistic transparencies and opacities, defined here as the absence or presence of discontinuities between the descriptive levels in the grammar.  ...  In this paper, the FDG architecture proper is described, including the role of the extra-grammatical conceptual and contextual components.  ...  The contextual component can interact with all grammatical levels. I will give two examples of long-term information and two of anaphoric references to an immediately previous discourse.  ...
