Model-theoretic grammar

Model-theoretic grammars, also known as constraint-based grammars, contrast with generative grammars in the way they define sets of sentences: they state constraints on syntactic structure rather than providing operations for generating syntactic objects.

Feature structure

1 links

In phrase structure grammars, such as generalised phrase structure grammar, head-driven phrase structure grammar and lexical functional grammar, a feature structure is essentially a set of attribute–value pairs.

The node labelled A immediately dominates the nodes B, C, and D, and the node labelled B immediately dominates C' and D'. also dominates C' and D', but not immediately

ID/LP grammar

ID/LP Grammars are a subset of Phrase Structure Grammars, differentiated from other formal grammars by distinguishing between immediate dominance (ID) and linear precedence (LP) constraints.

ID/LP Grammars are a subset of Phrase Structure Grammars, differentiated from other formal grammars by distinguishing between immediate dominance (ID) and linear precedence (LP) constraints.

The node labelled A immediately dominates the nodes B, C, and D, and the node labelled B immediately dominates C' and D'. also dominates C' and D', but not immediately

The idea first came to prominence as part of Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar; the ID/LP Grammar approach is also used in head-driven phrase structure grammar, lexical functional grammar, and other unification grammars.

American linguist and cognitive scientist.

His early work was as a member of the research teams that invented and developed head-driven phrase structure grammar (HPSG) as well as generalized phrase structure grammar, HPSG's immediate intellectual predecessor.
