Processing Underspecified Semantic Descriptions in the Constraint Language for Lambda Structures

Research on Language and Computation, 1:127-169, 2003.

The constraint language for lambda structures (CLLS) is an expressive language of tree descriptions which combines dominance constraints with powerful parallelism and binding constraints. CLLS was introduced as a uniform framework for defining underspecified semantics representations of natural language sentences, covering scope, ellipsis, and anaphora. This article presents saturation-based algorithms for processing the complete language of CLLS and gives an overview of previous results on questions of processing and complexity.
