Reweaving a Grammar for Wambaya
A Case Study in Grammar Engineering for Linguistic Hypothesis Testing
Keywords:syntax, computational syntax
This paper presents a case study in grammar engineering for linguistic hypothesis testing, focusing on the treatment of second position auxiliaries in an HPSG grammar for Wambaya. A detailed comparison of two versions of this grammar highlights the interconnectedness of linguistic phenomena, the model-dependence of linguistic analyses, and the value of computational support in calculating the consequences of differing analytical choices.
