We present an integrated architecture for word-level and sentence-level processing in a unification-based paradigm. The core of the sys- tem is a CLP implementation of a nnilication en- gine for feature structures suplmrting relational values. In this framework an IiPSC,-style granl- mar is implemented. Word-level processing uses X2MoltF, a morphological component I)ased on an extended version of two-level morphology. This component is tightly integrated with the grammar as a relation. The advantage of this apl)roach is that morphology and syntax are kept logically au- tonomous while at the same time minimizing in- terface problems.
