Numerally Quantified NPs in Welsh: Syntax and Semantics

Participants University of Essex, Department of Language and Linguistics

Objectives This project, which will run from September 2007 will investigate numerally quantified NPs in Welsh. It grows out of the work on developing a broad-coverage computational lexicon and grammar for Welsh (Celtic) at the University of Essex. This previous project was a part of PARGRAM, a collaborative project to develop computational grammars within a shared linguistic framework and based on common linguistic assumptions.

The syntactic framework of reference for the work on Welsh numerals is the highly stable and mathematically well-understood theory of Lexical Functional Grammar, a constraint-based theory of linguistic structure.

Our implemented work will use the XLE grammar development platform, an efficient and powerful system developed and maintained at the Palo Alto Research Center in California, which faithfully implements LFG theory.
