This paper gives an interpretation of Combinatory Categorial Grammar derivations in terms of the construction of traditional phrase structure trees. This structural level of representation not only shows how CCG is related to other grammatical investigations, but this paper also uses it to extend CCG in ways which are useful for analyzing and parsing natural language, including a better analysis of coordination.
