This paper presents a connectionist syntactic parser which uses Structure Unification Grammar as its grammatical framework. The parser is im- plemented in a connectionist architecture which stores and dynamically manipulates symbolic rep- resentations, but which can't represent arbitrary disjunction and has bounded memory. These problems can be overcome with Structure Unifica- tion Grammar's extensive use of partial descrip- tions.
