Workshop: Revisiting Lexical Integrity

A workshop will be held on the morning of July 24th, followed in the afternoon by the final session of the main LFG23 conference.

The theme of the workshop is Revisiting Lexical Integrity.

LFG’s Lexical Integrity Principle holds that the terminal nodes of c-structure are words, such that there is a strict separation between morphology and syntax. Some recent work in LFG and other frameworks has questioned various aspects of this claim. It is therefore time to revisit LFG’s notion of lexical integrity.
