A formal scope on the relations between definitions and verbal predications

  title={A formal scope on the relations between definitions and verbal predications},
  author={Cesar Augusto Lopez Aguilar},
This paper outlines a formal description of grammatical relations between definitions and verbal predications found in Definitional Contexts in Spanish. It can be situated within the framework of Predication Theory, a model derived from Government & Binding Grammar. We use this model to describe: (i) the syntactic patterns that establish the relationship between definitions and predications; (ii) how useful these patterns are for the identification of definitions in technical corpora.
