We introduce a framework for semantic interpreta- tion in which dependency structures are mapped to conceptual representations based on a parsimonious set of interpretation schemata. Our focus is on the empirical evaluation of this approach to semantic in- terpretation, i.e., its quality in terms of recall and precision. Measurements are taken with respect to two real-world domains, viz. information technology test reports and medical finding reports.
