Editor's Note

The 2020 Conference on Lexical Functional Grammar was held on-line. The program committee for LFG20 were John Lowe and Agnieszka Patejuk. We would like to thank them for coordinating the review process and working with the conference organizers to put together this year's on-line program. The conference was originally scheduled to take place at the University of Oslo in Norway, with Helge Lødrup and Dag Haug as organizers. Due to the pandemic, the executive committee decided to move the conference on-line. Koenraad De Smedt, George Aaron Broadwell, Stephen Jones, Joey Lovestrand, Kengatharaiyer Sarveswaran, Péter Szűcs, Fengrong Yang, John Lowe and Agnieszka Patejuk then took on the challenging task of figuring out which on-line format would best suit the LFG conference.

This committee implemented a website where extended abstracts, handouts and videos of talks were uploaded beforehand, along with an open commenting function. The synchronous part of the conference was held mainly in the form of QA sessions on the talks and posters accepted for the conference. Social gatherings were facilitated via Discord. This format worked out very well and we would like to thank the ad-hoc committee for an outstandingly well organized conference that worked well and smoothly.

As usual, we would also like to thank the executive committee and the abstract and final paper reviewers, without whose prompt and thorough work the conference and the proceedings would not have been possible in this form.

This year's conference was originally scheduled to include a workshop on Scandinavian syntax, but this was canceled when the conference as a whole moved on-line.

The table of contents lists all the papers presented at the conference. Some papers were not submitted to the proceedings. For these papers, we suggest contacting the authors directly. We note that all of the abstracts were peer-reviewed anonymously (double-blind reviewing) and that all of the papers submitted to the proceedings underwent an additional round of reviewing. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to all of the anonymous reviewers for the donation of their expertise and effort in what is often a very short turn-around time.

Hard Copy: All of the papers submitted to the LFG20 proceedings are available in one large pdf file. The proceedings' file was created via pdflatex tools and with the help of scripts written originally by Tracy Holloway King and Stefan Müller. We thank Sarah Weaver at CSLI Publications for making sure the proceedings become accessible via the CSLI site. Finally, we thank Dikran Karagueuzian at CSLI Publications for his continuous support of our proceedings and our community.
