Chapter 3: Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar

Short summary

The syntax of a fragment of English is defined. The fragment contains canonical structure, but also the definition for unbounded dependencies.

While the fragment is relatively standard, even readers with an HPSG background should consult it to see the details of our particular version of HPSG. This is necessary because the syntax-semantics interface, introduced from Chapter 5 on, will rely on this fragment.
