MetadataShow full item record
This thesis describes the expansion of the LinGO Grammar Matrix customization system with a library handling adnominal possession. This library extends the Grammar Matrix's ability to aid in the rapid prototyping of precision implemented grammars by allowing a typologically widespread phenomenon|adnominal possession|to be modeled within the customization system. This thesis describes an HPSG analysis of adnominal possession that covers most attested adnominal possessive phrase types, and discusses its implementation in the form of a Grammar Matrix library. The library's cross-linguistic generality is evaluated through a series of tests on constructed and natural languages.
