Hierarchical Statistical Semantic Realization for Minimal Recursion Semantics

Hierarchical Statistical Semantic Realization for Minimal Recursion Semantics” by Matic Horvat, Ann Copestake, and William Byrne. In Proceedings of the International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS 2015), Apr. 2015.

Abstract

We introduce a robust statistical approach to realization from Minimal Recursion Semantics rep- resentations. The approach treats realization as a translation problem, transforming the Dependency MRS graph representation to a surface string. Translation is based on a Synchronous Context-Free Grammar that is automatically extracted from a large corpus of parsed sentences. We have evaluated the new approach on the Wikiwoods corpus, where it shows promising results.
