Lexical Functional Grammar
LFG is a psycho-linguistically based, lexically driven universal grammar in which semantic, syntactic and configurational relationships are analysed as related but partially independent levels of organisation. This makes LFG suited to analysis of languages of all types. LFG is also widely implemented in language synthesis, automatic parsing, SLA and creole studies. Understanding of word classes and constituency is assumed.
