Venue Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics

We describe a method for interpreting ab- stract fiat syntactic representations, LFG f- structures, as underspecified semantic rep- resentations, here Underspecified Discourse Representation Structures (UDRSs). The method establishes a one-to-one correspon- dence between subsets of the LFG and UDRS formalisms. It provides a model theoretic interpretation and an inferen- tial component which operates directly on underspecified representations for f- structures through the translation images of f-structures as UDRSs.
