This paper presents a novel approach to deter- mine textual similarity. A layered methodol- ogy to transform text into logic forms is pro- posed, and semantic features are derived from a logic prover. Experimental results show that incorporating the semantic structure of sen- tences is beneficial. When training data is unavailable, scores obtained from the logic prover in an unsupervised manner outperform supervised methods.
