One way to construct semantic represen- tations in a robust manner is to enhance shallow language processors with seman- tic components. Here, we provide a model theory for a semantic formalism that is de- signed for this, namely Robust Minimal Recursion Semantics (RMRS). We show that RMRS supports a notion of entailment that allows it to form the basis for compar- ing the semantic output of different parses of varying depth.
