Abstract

This paper introduces Linear Context-Free Rewriting Systems, a mildly context-sensitive grammar formalism that displays a range of interesting formal properties and that has attracted a lot of interest in the context of natural language parsing recently because of its capacity to describe discontinuous constituents and non-projective dependencies. Besides a presentation of the formalism, the paper includes a discussion of recent LCFRS applications in parsing and dependency grammar.
