We exploit and extend the Generative Lexicon The- ory to develop a formal description of adnominal constituents in a lexicon which can deal with linguis- tic phenomena found in Japanese adnominal con- stituents. We classify the problematic behavior into "static disambiguation" and "dynamic disambigua- tion" tasks. Static disambiguation can be done using lexical information in a dictionary, whereas dynamic disambiguation requires inferences at the knowledge representation level.
