This paper presents a framework for com- bining semantic relations extracted from text to reveal even more semantics that otherwise would be missed. A set of 26 re- lations is introduced, with their arguments defined on an ontology of sorts. A seman- tic parser is used to extract these relations from noun phrases and verb argument structures. The method was successfully used in two applications: rapid customiza- tion of semantic relations to arbitrary do- mains and recognizing entailments.
