We consider multilingual semantic parsing ? the task of simultaneously parsing semantically equivalent sentences from multiple different languages into their corresponding formal semantic representations. Our model is built on top of the hybrid tree semantic parsing framework, where natural language sentences and their corresponding semantics are assumed to be generated jointly from an underlying generative process. We first introduce a variant of the joint generative pro- cess, which essentially gives us a new semantic parsing model within the framework. Based on the different models that can be developed within the framework, we then investigate several ap- proaches for performing the multilingual semantic parsing task. We present our evaluations on a standard dataset annotated with sent...
