A logic of semantic representations for shallow parsing

Alexander Koller and Alex Lascarides

In Proceedings of the 12th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL), Athens, 2009.

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 designed 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.
