Lexicogrammar & Natural Language Processing 2017


Lexis is the total stock of words in a language. Lexical grammar lays down the rules governing how a character sequence is divided up into subsequences of characters. Coined by Michael Halliday, lexicogrammar describes the relation of grammar to lexis as one of a continuum with an infinite number of gradations from one extreme to the other.
