Computing Meaning: Volume 3 by Harry Bunt, Reinhard Muskens

By Harry Bunt, Reinhard Muskens

This e-book offers an in-depth view of the present concerns, difficulties and methods within the computation of that means as expressed in language. aimed toward linguists, laptop scientists, and logicians with an curiosity within the computation of that means, this publication specializes in major themes in contemporary study in computational semantics. the 1st subject is the definition and use of underspecified semantic representations, i.e. formal buildings that signify a part of the that means of a linguistic item whereas leaving different elements unspecified. the second one subject mentioned is semantic annotation. Annotated corpora became an necessary source either for linguists and for builders of language and speech know-how, specifically whilst utilized in mix with computing device studying equipment. The annotation in corpora has purely marginally addressed semantic details, besides the fact that, due to the fact that semantic annotation methodologies are nonetheless of their infancy. This ebook discusses the improvement and alertness of such methodologies.

The f-structure to QLF translation algorithm is based on (van Genabith and Crouch, 1996) and extended to include passive constructions, wh-questions, relative clauses, fronted material and subjects of participal clauses, gerunds and infinitival clauses, modification (adjectival, adverbial, prepositional, appositional and sentential and non-sentential adjuncts as well as relative clauses) and coordinate/subordinate constructions. e. a sub-f-structure marked LGS = +. If this is the case, the translation of this sub-f-structure is used as the logical subject in the QLF translation of the passive construction, while the QLF translation of the surface SUBJ(ect) f-structure is used as the logical object in the QLF translation.
