Ve propose a two-layered model for computing se- mantic and (:onceI)tual interpretations from del)en- dency struetm'es. Abstract interl)retatio,t s(:hemata generate semantic interpretations of 'minimal' de- pendency sul)gral)hs, while production rules whose sl)eeitieation is rooted ill ontologi(:al categories de- rive a canonical con(:eptual il~terl)retation from se- lna.ntic int;ert)retal;ion sl;ruel;ures. Configm'ational descriptions of del)endeney gral)hs increase the lin- guistic generality of interl)rel,ation s(:hemata, while interfimillg sehemata and t)ro(htcl;ions t() lexi(:al and COll(:el)l:tl~ll (;lass hierarchies re(ht(:es the amount and complexity of semantic sl)e(:iti(:atJons.
