This paper presents a new perspective on the use of semantic an- notations. We argue that semantic annotations should (1) capture semantic information that is complimentary to the information that is expressed in the source text; (2) have a formal interpretation. If these conditions are fullfilled, then the information in semantic annotations can be effectively combined with the information in the source text by interpreting a semantic annotation language through the transla- tion of annotations into the same formalism as underspecified semantic representations obtained through compositional semantic analysis.
