This paper presents the results of auto- matically inducing a Combinatory Cate- gorial Grammar (CCG) lexicon from a Turkish dependency treebank. The fact that Turkish is an agglutinating free word- order language presents a challenge for language theories. We explored possible ways to obtain a compact lexicon, consis- tent with CCG principles, from a treebank which is an order of magnitude smaller than Penn WSJ.
