Welcome to the Tübingen HPSG Library!

You have just entered the complete online library of all HPSG literature written at the SfS over the last decade. In several catalogues we have collected all available references to manuscripts, papers, articles, and books that have been written by members of the Tübingen HPSG community. The idea of this bibliography and library is to make access easier to all of the papers that are usually hard to locate, either because they were published in hard-to-find tech reports and conference proceedings or remained unpublished, although they were occasionally cited in literature. This bibliography also serves to give a comprehensive overview of all the literature on HPSG written in Tübingen. You will find downloadable electronic versions of all papers that are available to us and are not protected by external copyright; links to abstracts of the papers; and, wherever possible, links to the homepages of the authors. The Tübingen HPSG Library is the best place on the Internet to go, if you are looking for papers on HPSG by Tübingen authors. 

How to use the library

The Tübingen HPSG Library consists of a complete alphabetical catalogue, a graphical overview table of the available thematic catalogues, and a set of thematic catalogues, which are again ordered alphabetically. The format of all catalogues is the same, which means that all available additional functions are the same in each catalogue. 

Thematic Catalogues

The thematic catalogues are then grouped into four main categories: "Linguistic Theory", "Feature Logic", "Computation", and "Reports and Theses". Each category has several headings, which might in turn have more sub-headings. In general, a paper can occur under more than one category or heading. It is important to note that a heading might not contain all papers in its sub-headings; conversely, the sub-headings are not an exhaustive compilation of the papers in the main heading. This is also true for the relationship between categories and headings. 

The key ideas of our categorization can best be understood by considering a few examples. The category "Feature Logic" contains all papers of the complete bibliography that make a substantial contribution to the topic of feature logic. The headings of "Feature Logic" are "SRL" and "RSRL". However, "Feature Logic" covers a much broader range of topics than papers on these two particular varieties of feature logic. Naturally, there are papers under "Feature Logic" which neither occur under "SRL" nor under "RSRL". On the other hand, there are papers in "RSRL" that are not listed under "Feature Logic". For example, Adam Przepiórkowski's dissertation is about Polish syntax, but large parts of it are formalized in RSRL. Adam's dissertation is thus an important contribution to the RSRL literature, showing with many concrete examples, how RSRL is applied in linguistic theorizing; therefore "RSRL" is a natural heading for his dissertation, although it would be misleading to list his work under the category of "Feature Logic". 

Additional Functions in the Catalogues

Each catalogue is divided into two columns. The right column contains an alphabetical list of papers. The format of the bibliographic entries follows a standard Bibtex style of Latex. For each entry in the right column, there is a citation key in standard citation format (e.g., [Kepser, 2001]) in the left column. Under each citation key you find up to six clickable icons that provide additional functions for the paper:

Go to a separate page containing a complete Bibtex entry of the paper for pasting it into your own Bibtex file
Download the paper in postscript format
Download the paper in gzipped postscript format
Download the paper in PDF format for Acrobat Reader
Go to a webpage with an abstract of the paper or with additional information on it
Go to the homepage of the first author

Character Encoding

Our catalogues are encoded in the international UTF-8 character set, which supports a wide range of special characters. The most recent releases of the most frequently used browsers, including Mozilla, Netscape, and Explorer, support this format without requiring any special settings. If you are using an older browser, however, you might not be able to see non-standard characters displayed correctly. For example, older versions of Netscape (4.x) display them as question marks. If you experience difficulties, we suggest upgrading to a newer browser. 

How to create your own online libraries

Would you like to create your own online library from your favorite Bibtex files that you have been using for years? We can help you! We have developed a software package that allows you to create an online library like ours with almost no effort, provided you have a Bibtex file containing the entries that you would like to see in your online catalogues. Following the link "The Library Online Project" on this page you find a description of the software package and links for downloading the source files.
