Question Generation with Minimal Recursion Semantics
1 Proceedings of the Third Workshop on Question Generation: Shared Task Evaluation Challenge, QG-STEC, 2010
This paper proposes a semantics-based approach to question generation by transforming the Minimal Recursion Semantics representation of declarative sentences to that of interrogative sentences. Sentences are first decomposed into smaller units on the semantic level. Then the semantic representation of target words are mapped to that of question words. Finally generation is realized through a linguistically deep English grammar. A prototype system is developed to verify the feasibility.
