In Combinatory Categnrial Grammar (CCG) [Ste90, Ste91], semantic function-argument structures are com- positionally produced through the course of a deriva- tion. These structures identify, inter alia, which enti- ties play the same roles in different events for expres- sions involving a wide range of coordinate constructs. This sameness of role (i.e. ~hematie) information is not identified, however, across eases of verbal diathe- sis. To handle these cases as well, the present paper demonstrates how to adapt the solution developed in Conceptual Semantics [Jac90, Jac91] to fit the CCG paradigm. The essence of the approach is to redefine the Link- ing Theory component of Conceptual Semantics in terms of CCG categories, so that derivations yield con- ceptual structures representing the desir...
