The 24th International LFG Conference (LFG2019)

July 8-10, 2019 in Canberra

Venue: Hedley Bull Lecture Room 1, Hedley Bull Building (130), Australian National University

LFG2019 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. As Australia and the region are home to many of the world’s languages, we welcome papers applying LFG approaches to describing lesser studied languages.

We will also organise a workshop on the ‘Syntax and Morphology Interface in LFG’ on 10th July 2019.

There will be a Teach-in on LFG for Historical Linguistics on 6th July 2019, organised in conjunction with ICHL12 (1st-5th 2019, also held in Canberra).

On 7th July 2019, there will be a social event - a Bush Walk.
