Chapter Summary

The series consists of case studies concerned with the role that lexical information and lexically driven inference play in the construction of semantic representations of discourses. Semantic representations are constructed as in DRT: Discourse representations (DRSs) are built sentence by sentence, with each new sentence yielding an extension of the DRS for the preceding text. The present disambiguation strategy depends - the verbs kaufen and ausleihen - and to deal with all other words in the manner of earlier construction algorithms For present purposes it is crucial that DRS construction involves the use of a lexicon, which specifies the relevant syntactic and semantic properties of the words that make up the processed sentences.
