We present a new approach to learning a semantic parser (a system that maps natu- ral language sentences into logical form). Unlikepreviousmethods,itexploitsanex- isting syntactic parser to produce disam- biguated parse trees that drive the compo- sitional semantic interpretation. The re- sulting system produces improved results on standard corpora on natural language interfaces for database querying and sim- ulated robot control.
