Unification-Based Semantic Interpretation Robert C. Moore Artificial Intelligence Center SRI International Menlo Park, CA 94025 We show how unification can be used to spec- ify the semantic interpretation of natural-language expressions, including problematical constructions involving long-distance dependencies. We also sketch a theoretical foundation for unification- based semantic interpretation, and compare the unification-based approach with more conven- tional techniques based on the lambda calculus.
