I describe a head-driven parser for a class of gram- mars that handle discontinuous constituency by a richer notion of string combination than ordinary concatenation. The parser is a generalization of the left-corner parser (Matsumoto et al. , 1983) and can be used for grammars written in power- ful formalisms such as non-concatenative versions of HPSG (Pollard, 1984; Reape, 1989).
