In this paper we provide a probabilis- tic interpretation for typed feature struc- tures very similar to those used by Pol- lard and Sag. We begin with a ver- sion of the interpretation which lacks a treatment of re-entrant feature struc- tures, then provide an extended interpre- tation which allows them. We sketch al- gorithms allowing the numerical param- eters of our probabilistic interpretations of HPSG to be estimated from corpora.
