This paper investigates cross-lingual textual entailment as a semantic relation between two text portions in different languages, and pro- poses a prospective research direction. We argue that cross-lingual textual entailment (CLTE) can be a core technology for sev- eral cross-lingual NLP applications and tasks. Through preliminary experiments, we aim at proving the feasibility of the task, and provid- ing a reliable baseline. We also introduce new applications for CLTE that will be explored in future work.
