Venue Annual Meeting of The European Chapter of The Association of Computational Linguistics
Session System Demonstration

Cognitive linguistics has reached a stage of maturity where many researchers are looking for an explicit formal grounding of their work. Unfortunately, most current models of deep language processing incor- porate assumptions from generative gram- mar that are at odds with the cognitive movement in linguistics. This demonstra- tion shows how Fluid Construction Gram- mar (FCG), a fully operational and bidi- rectional unification-based grammar for- malism, caters for this increasing demand. FCG features many of the tools that were pioneered in computational linguistics in the 70s-90s, but combines them in an inno- vative way. This demonstration highlights the main differences between FCG and re- lated formalisms.
