This paper proposes a knowledge repre- sentation model and a logic proving set- ting with axioms on demand success- fully used for recognizing textual entail- ments. It also details a lexical inference system which boosts the performance of the deep semantic oriented approach on the RTE data. The linear combination of two slightly different logical systems with the third lexical inference system achieves 73.75% accuracy on the RTE 2006 data.
