Arguments, Grammatical Relations,
and Diathetic Paradigm
Three syntactic representation levels are de facto
distinguished in recent HPSG research. The ARG-ST
list represents the inherent argument structure of a
predicate, its syntactic arguments. The DEPS list
contains the actual dependents of a predicate, its
grammatical relations. The VALENCE lists encode the
local combinatorial potential of a predicate in terms
of overt grammatical functions like subject (SUBJ),
specifier (SPR) and complements (COMPS). We ar-
gue that the distinction between ARG-ST and DEPS is
the first crucial step towards developing a more
general theory of diathesis and diathetic paradig-
matic relations in HPSG. Once the feature DEPS is
admitted in the architecture of HPSG sign, formal
means for modelling the systematic interaction
