  • Publications pre-2000

    An Archive of papers on LFG from the last century. Papers are provided in the original formats supplied by the authors, and in compressed formats generated by us, currently .gz (gunzip) for Unix, and .zip (pkunzip) for Dos/Wintel.

    The archive is closed to submissions. If you have something from pre-2000 that you think might be of interest and therefore worth including, contact Jessica Zipf or any member of the ILFGA executive.
