The interpretation of temporal expressions in text is an important constituent task for many practical natural language process- ing tasks, including question-answering, information extraction and text summari- sation. Although temporal expressions have long been studied in the research literature, it is only more recently, with the impetus provided by exercises like the ACE Program, that attention has been directed to broad-coverage, implemented systems. In this paper, we describe our approach to intermediate semantic repre- sentations in the interpretation of temporal expressions.
