Abstract

Incrementality is a widely held assumption that constrains the language processor to parse the input words from left to right. In this paper we describe the basic features of a constituency-based dynamic grammar based on Tree Adjoining Grammar, which natively fulfills a strict version of incrementality. We focus on the linguistic appeal of the formalism, analyzing a number of linguistic phenomena and exploiting the relation between dynamic constituency analysis and lexical dependencies.
