This paper presents a way in which a lex- icalised HPSG grammar can handle word order constraints in a computational pars- ing system, without invoking an additional layer of representation for word order, such as Reape’s Word Order Domain. The key proposal is to incorporate into lexi- cal heads the WOC (Word Order Con- straints) feature, which is used to constrain the word order of its projection.
