Aims and Scope
FG provides a forum for the presentation of new and original research on formal grammar, mathematical linguistics and the application of formal and mathematical methods to the study of natural language. Themes of interest include, but are not limited to:
Formal and computational phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics
Model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics
Logical aspects of linguistic structure
Constraint-based and resource-sensitive approaches to grammar
Learnability of formal grammar
Integration of stochastic and symbolic models of grammar
Foundational, methodological and architectural issues in grammar and linguistics
Mathematical foundations of statistical approaches to linguistic analysis
Previous conferences in this series have welcomed papers from a wide variety of frameworks.

Registration (to FG only or ESSLLI+FG) information is available on ESSLLI web site.

Please note that registration is allowed only
until June 29th
