Information structure (Choi 1999, Butt and King 1996, 2000) is related to other grammatical levels within the projection architecture of LFG (Kaplan 1987, Asudeh 2006). LFG provides the tools needed to analyse the relation between these structures and to give a formal treatment of the grammar of object marking and its relation to semantics and information structure. 1 Grammatical functions A central tenet of LFG theory is the dual nature of syntactic structure. 1 Grammatical functions 23 and subjects from nonsubjects, for example.

Here, we provide a brief overview of the standard LFG view of objects. Recent LFG work has explored the object functions from a variety of perspectives: see Lam (2008) for a thorough discussion of object functions with a focus on constructions with multiple objects, and B¨orjars and Vincent (2008) for an LFG-based perspective that differs from the traditional view in interesting ways, particularly with regard to the analysis of the English double object construction. We return to a discussion of the object functions and object mapping in Chapter 9.

This tree is not the product of a movement process or the input to any transformational operation; LFG does not assume the existence of processes that modify or destroy grammatical structure. The categories in the tree shown in (9) are standard X -theoretic, endocentric categories. 4 With the possible exception of coordinate phrases, all phrase structure categories in English are endocentric (that is, headed).
