Abstract. In this paper, I show how the development of Norsyg, an HPSG-inspired construc-tionalist grammar of Norwegian, benefits from the highly specific and precise implementationof NorGram, an LFG grammar for Norwegian. I focus on one aspect, NorGram’s fine-grainedlexical categories. The aim of the paper is twofold: (i) to give a glimpse of the process of devel-oping a computational grammar, and (ii) to illustrate how a constructionalist grammar benefitsfrom the insights of NorGram, even though the grammatical models differ significantly.
