The question of how to compose meaning in distributional representations of meaning has re- cently been recognised as a central issue in computational linguistics. In this paper we describe three general and powerful tools that can be used to describe composition in distributional seman- tics: quotient algebras, learning of finite dimensional algebras, and the construction of algebras from semigroups.
