The notion of UNIT-to-UNIT inter- action is introduced to analyse dependency relations between words in a sentence. A UNIT is a basic framework for concept representation and is composed of many slots. After generating a parsed tree from an input sentence, our se- mantic interpretation begins traversing.the tree from right to left to discern the case frame in a stage as early as possible, since Japanese is a language in which verb is in the sentence- final and has a case frame. UNIT-to-UNIT inter- action, which is performed at each node of the parsed tree, follows a bottom-up progression. There are UNIT descriptions at terminal (bottom) nodes and the UNIT descriptions are modified or merged into other UNITs in the course of the interaction. The results of the interaction will be transferr...
