International Conference on Formal Grammar FG 2018: Formal Grammar 2018

Netherlands: Springer, 2018.

The Formal Grammar conference series (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
– 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

FG 2018, the 23rd conference on Formal Grammar, was held in Sofia, Bulgaria,
