Let me add the work that Dalrymple, Lamping and I have been doing
(with various collaborators) on using Linear cc as the vehicle
for assembling meanings of natural language utterances, in a
context where the parsing is done using Kaplan and Bresnan's LFG
(Lexical Functional Grammars).


This approach  is being pursued by several other authors now, and
a book (edited collection of papers) is being worked on.

and the answer:

This question is probably better addressed to the linear mailing list, so I am
forwarding it there.....
Database updates based on the previous work (Vauzeilles+?).

here it is another reference about LL and Database Updates:

James Harland, Michael Winikoff and I designed and built the linear
logic programming language Lygon. Although the main point of the work
was/is to push through a theory of logic programming from semantic and 
proof-theoretic foundations (Pym/Harland, J. Logic Computat. 1994) to
implmentation (Winikoff's Ph.D. thesis, University of Melbourne) to
applications (Harland/Pym/Winikoff, AMAST 96), the intended
applications were always state-and-action problems.

Many other references and examples of AI-related applications, 
as well as a free distribution, can be found on the Lygon web page, 


which is subject to development. 

All aspects of this work, foundations/implementations/applications,  
are continuing. 

I hope this information is of some interest to you. 

All best wishes,
