Compiling some linguex code gives me:

Runaway argument?
\newgll  [CP Ceapann tú [CP go bhuailfidh an píobaire an t-amhrán \ETC.
! File ended while scanning use of \ai.
<inserted text> 
                \par 

Code:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{linguex}

\begin{document}
\ex. \aig. [CP Ceapann tú [CP go bhuailfidh an píobaire an t-amhrán ]] \\
          think you that play.FUT the piper the song\\
          `You think that the piper will play the song.'\\
 \big. An t-ór seo$_i$ [CP a$_N$ chreid corr-dhuine [CP go raibh sé$_i$ ann ] ].\\
       the gold DEM that.RSMP thought some-people that was it there\\
       `This gold that some people thought was there'\\

\end{document}

You need an empty line after every \ex.. The following works fine (apart from an underfull \hbox):

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{linguex}

\begin{document}
\ex. \aig. [CP Ceapann tú [CP go bhuailfidh an píobaire an t-amhrán ]] \\
          think you that play.FUT the piper the song\\
          `You think that the piper will play the song.'\\

\end{document}

Page 1 of the linguex documentation:

The list environment created by \ex. must be closed by a single blank line (a \par). The text following this list will not be indented. In order to get a \parindent, a second blank line must be added, immediately following the first.

  • What about multiple lines? sprunge.us/JUGA gives me the same error. Dec 10, 2012 at 22:29
  • @Tass That doesn't give me any errors, just the same warning. Deleting the auxiliary files might help? Generally: Please always include all code, output, etc. directly here on the site, i.e. edit your question if new "evidence" comes up, and point to that in the comments.

  • I get sprunge.us/aCcK Dec 10, 2012 at 22:40
  • @Tass Please edit your question if you have more data to show.
