A system, WOLFIE, that acquires a map- ping of words to their semantic representa- tion is presented and a preliminary evalua- tion is performed. Tree least general gener- alizations (TLGGs) of the representations of input sentences are performed to assist in determining the representations of indi- vidual words in the sentences. The best guess for a meaning of a word is the TLGG which overlaps with the highest percentage of sentence representations in which that word appears. Some promising experimen- tal results on a non-artificial data set are presented.
