The paper presents a method for semantics construction that converts dependency structures from the TIGER dependency treebank to RMRSs as they are output by HPSG grammars. This approach allows us to construct a valuable resource for cross-framework parser evaluation for German. It can further be applied to existing dependency banks for English or other languages to produce RMRS semantic representations.
