Inheritance-driven CCG encapsulates a uniform approach to the elimination of redundancy in CCG lexicons, where grammars incorporate inheritance hierarchies of lexical types, defined over a simple, feature-based category description language. The resulting formalism is partially ‘model-theoretic’, in that the category notation is interpreted against an underlying set of tree-like typed feature structures. This extension of CCG subsumes a number of other proposed category notations devised to allow for the construction of more efficient lexicons.
