We present a treebank conversion method by which we construct an RMRS bank for HPSG parser evaluation from the TIGER Dependency Bank. Our method effectively performs automatic RMRS semantics construction from functional dependencies, following the semantic algebra of (Copestake et al., 2001). We present the semantics construction mechanism, and focus on some special phenomena. Automatic conversion is followed by manual validation. First evaluation results yield high precision of the automatic semantics construction rules.
