One of the claimed benefits of Tree Ad- joining Grammars is that they have an extended domain of locality (EDOL). We consider how this can be exploited to limit the need for feature structure uni- fication during parsing. We compare two wide-coverage lexicalized grammars of English, LEXSYS and XTAG, finding that the two grammars exploit EDOL in different ways.
