A modular parallel distributed processing architec- ture for parsing, representing and paraphrasing sen- tences with multiple hierarchical relative clauses is presented. A lowel-level network reads the segments of the sentence word by word into partially specified case-role representations of the acts. A higher-level network combines these representations into a list of complete act representations. This internal represen- tation stores the information conveyed by the sen- tence independent of its linguistic form. The infor- mation can be output in natural language in different form or style, e,g. as a sequence of simple sentences or as a complex sentence consisting of relative clauses. Generating output is independent from parsing, and what actually gets generated depends on the training ...
