Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics

This paper compares the consislency- based account of agreement phenomena in 'unification-based' grammars with an implication-based account based on a sim- ple feature extension to Lambek Catego- rim Grammar (LCG). We show that the LCG treatment accounts for constructions that have been recognized as problematic for 'unification-based' treatments.
