Title Situations And Prepositional Phrases
Venue Annual Meeting of The European Chapter of The Association of Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1987

This paper presents a format for representing the linguistic form of utterances, called situation schemata, which is rooted in the situation semantics of Barwise and Perry. A treatment of locative prepositional phrases is given, thus illustrating the generation of the situation schemata and their interpretation in situation semantics.
