   This third chapter is an extension of the previous two chapters. In the first place, the periphrastic conjugation of verbs is analysed. The formalization of this part of the grammar is essential for any system aimming at parsing common sentences of Basque, as in this language most verbs are conjugated periphrastically. From this point of view, it will be shown that an LFG approach presents an obvious advantage, that of its simplicity. Finally, in the second part of the chapter, an attempt at sketching an LFG version of facts related with the focus position which was dehated in the prior chapter is presented.
