It is well known that pragmatic knowl- edge is useful and necessary in many dif- ficult language processing tasks, but be- cause this knowledge is difficult to acquire and process automatically, it is rarely used. We present an open information extrac- tion technique for automatically extracting a particular kind of pragmatic knowledge from text, and we show how to integrate the knowledge into a Markov Logic Net- work model for quantifier scope disam- biguation. Our model improves quantifier scope judgments in experiments.
