A Logic of Semantic Representations for Shallow Parsing

Alexander Koller, Alex Lascarides

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


One way to construct semantic representations in a robust manner is to enhance shallow language processors with semantic components. Here, we provide a model theory for a semantic formalism that is de-signed for this, namely Robust Minimal Recursion Semantics (RMRS). We show that RMRS supports a notion of entailment that allows it to form the basis for comparing the semantic output of different parses of varying depth.
