In this paper I outline Type-inheritance Combi- natory Categorial Grammar (TCCG), an imple- mented feature structure based CCG fragment of English. TCCG combines the fully lexical nature of CCG with the type-inheritance hierar- chies and complex feature structures of Head- driven Phrase Structure Grammars (HPSG). The result is a CCG/HPSG hybrid that com- bines linguistic generalizations previously only statable in one theory or the other, even extend- ing the set of statable generalizations to those not easily captured by either theory.
