Multiset-CCG is a combinatory catego- rial formalism that can capture the syn- tax and interpretation of "free" word or- der in languages such as Turkish. The formalism compositionally derives the predicate-argument structure and the in- formation structure (e.g. topic, focus) of a sentence, and uniformly handles word order variation among arguments and adjuncts within a clause, as well as in complex clauses and across clause boundaries.
