The 3rd Dynamic Syntax Conference
University of Malta Valleta Campus, 16-17 May 2019
Dynamic Syntax (Cann et al. 2005; Kempson et al. 2001, 2011) is a grammar formalism designed to reflect directly the time-linear dimension of natural language processing. It has been applied to a range of natural language phenomena, exploring in particular the interaction between anaphora resolution, ellipsis and structural forms of underspecification in natural-language interpretation. It has been shown to provide a natural basis for expressing typologies of relative clause structures, left-periphery structures, and wh-questions, and has also been applied successfully in the analysis and modelling of various dialogue phenomena.
