Some problems are discussed that arise for incremental pro- cessing using certain flezible categorial grammars, which in- volve either undesirable parsing properties or failure to allow combinations useful to incrementality. We suggest a new cal- culus which, though 'designed' in relation to categorial inter- pretatious of some notions of dependency grammar, seems to provide a degree of flexibility that is highly appropriate for in- cremental interpretation. We demonstrate how this grammar may be used for efficient incremental parsing, by employing normalisation techniques.
