Semantic parsing is a domain-dependent process by nature, as its output is defined over a set of domain symbols. Motivated by the observation that interpretation can be decomposed into domain-dependent and independent components, we suggest a novel interpretation model, which aug- ments a domain dependent model with ab- stract information that can be shared by multiple domains. Our experiments show that this type of information is useful and can reduce the annotation effort signifi- cantly when moving between domains.
