DFKI-LT - Constraint-Based RMRS Construction from Shallow Grammars
Constraint-Based RMRS Construction from Shallow Grammars
5 Proceedings of the HPSG04 Conference Workshop on Semantics in Grammar Engineering, Leuven, Belgium, CSLI Publications, Stanford, CA, 2004
We present a constraint-based syntax-semantics interface for the construction of RMRS (Robust Minimal Recursion Semantics) representations from shallow grammars. The architecture is designed to allow modular interfaces to existing shallow grammars of various depth---ranging from chunk grammars to context-free stochastic grammars. We define modular semantics construction principles in a typed feature structure formalism that allow flexible adaptation to alternative grammars and different languages.
