The new version of XLFG, quite different from the preceding ones, is available for use at the URL

XLFG is a fast, accurate deep parser for LFG grammars.

The front-end of XLFG, available for everyone on website is designed to conduct research or teach syntactic analysis.

It does not contain grammars nor lexicon, but some examples in English and French are available to start with.

The outputs are word lattices, constituent-structures, functional-structures and argument-structures.

The user can toggle through various result views in order to see the details of analysis (compounds, ill-formed FS, ambiguous CS, predicate-argument structure, etc).

Finally, this new version is an useful teaching material for who wants to organize integrated courses, tutorials and workshops.

For further information consult our documentation on the web site.
