Feature cooccurrence restrictions (FCRs) formulate well-formedness conditions for feature structures used by Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar. As a feature structure in this approach is taken to be an arbitrary set of feature specifications, it is necessary to block the combination of feature specifications which from a linguistic point of view make no sense. Most FCRs are formulated as implications.
