Lexico-semantic Coordination in Polish

Agnieszka Patejuk and Adam Przepiórkowski


Link to pdf of paper

On the basis of data extracted from the largest currently available corpus of Polish, this paper discusses a variety of coordination under which, contrary to previous (mostly implicit) assumptions, particular conjuncts may correspond to distinct grammatical functions at the level of f-structure as long as they represent the same restricted semantic class (wh-words, n-words and items expressing quantifiers). Moreover, it demonstrates that dependents coordinated in this way may additionally belong to entirely different f-structures (depend on distinct heads) and it offers a formal analysis which was successfully implemented in a large XLE grammar of Polish.
