... of.1.1
Clearly this is not necessarily the case: a finite state grammar, which recognizes a superset of English need not be constrained at all, but can be parsed very efficiently ...

... constant.2.1
Note that, unlike in PATR II, the descriptor c l is syntactically allowed, but all constraints containing such descriptors will be unsatisfiable. Such descriptors are allowed because this allows a more elegant definition of the simplification rules defined later.

Note that in fact the variables in the feature graphs do not matter; hence each of fi represents a class of feature graphs.

... suitable.2.3
Some confusion can easily arise here. In the logic programming tradition, the head of a definite clause p :- q1... qn is the atom p; in the linguistic tradition the head of a rule is one of the daughters of the rule. Viewing a rule as a definite clause, as I do here, thus gives rise to two notions of head: the linguistic' head is one of qi, whereas the logical' head is p. In using the term head' I will refer to the linguistic notion of head'.

Note that this particular instantiation of the problem partly disappears using the sort labels as introduced in the previous section to differentiate between semantic structures of different arity.

...coherence). 2.6
Note that this usage of the terms completeness and coherence should not be confused with the usual meaning of these terms in logic. Neither should it be confused with yet another notion of completeness and coherence which is used in LFG to enforce subcategorization requirements.
