Lexical-Functional Grammar Conference 2018

17.07.2018 09:00 - 19.07.2018 19:00

17-19 July 2018, Vienna, Austria

Department of African Studies & Department of Linguistics, University of Vienna

LFG18 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) constraints from
multiple levels of structuring, including those of syntactic categories, grammatical relations,
semantics and discourse.

We will hold a workshop on Information Structure on 20 July 2018.

On 16 July 2018, there will be a pre-conference excursion, tentatively planned as a return
cruise on the Danube to Wachau. 


The program of the main conference is now online: http://lfg2018.univie.ac.at/program/
