This paper looks at integrating dependency and constituency into acommon framework, using the TAG formalism and a differentperspective on the meta-level grammar of Dras (1999a) in which themeta level models dependencies and the object level modelsconstituency. This framework gives consistent dependency analysesof raising verbs interacting with bridge verbs, additionally givinga solution to a problem in Synchronous TAG, and gives appropriateanalyses of subject-auxiliary inversion. This and other evidencesuggests the integration of dependency and constituency is a usefulavenue to explore.
