Editor's Note

For this year's edition of the LFG Proceedings, we welcome Jamie Findlay to the team of editors.

The 2021 Conference on Lexical Functional Grammar was held on-line. The program committee for LFG21 were Tina Bögel 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 for the second year in a row. Stephen Jones, Joey Lovestrand, Kengatharaiyer Sarveswaran, Péter Szűcs and Fengrong Yang then took on the challenging task of organizing the on-line version of the conference. We would like to thank them and David Diem, who developed and maintained the LFG21 website, for their time and engagement!

Extended abstracts, handouts and videos of talks were able to be uploaded before the conference, along with an open commenting function. The synchronous part of the conference was held mainly in the form of QA sessions on the talks via Zoom. Poster sessions and 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.

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.

As we were putting together the proceedings, news reached us that our friend and colleague Jürgen Wedekind had passed away suddenly at the end of December. On the behalf of the LFG community, we would like to here express our heartfelt grief at losing him too early.

Hard Copy: All of the papers submitted to the LFG21 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 Dikran Karagueuzian at CSLI Publications for his continuous support of our proceedings and our community.

The table of contents lists all the papers presented at the conference.
