This paper defines a language Z~ for spe- cifying LFG grammars. This enables constraints on LFG's composite onto- logy (c-structures synchronised with f- structures) to be stated directly; no ap- peal to the LFG construction algorithm is needed. We use f to specify schemata annotated rules and the LFG uniquen- ess, completeness and coherence princip- les. Broader issues raised by this work are noted and discussed.
