I describe a head-driven parser for a class of grammars that handle discontinuous constituency by a richer notion of string combination than ordinary concatenation. The parser is a generalization of the left-corner parser and can be used for grammars written in powerful formalisms such as non-concatenative versions of UCG and HPSG.
