On Underspecified Processing of Dynamic Semantics

Alexander Koller, Joachim Niehren

Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Computational Linguistics, pp. 460--466, July 2000

We propose a new inference system which operates on underspecified semantic representations of scope and anaphora. This inference system exploits anaphoric accessibility conditions known from dynamic semantics to decide scope ambiguities if possible. The main feature of the system is that it deals with underspecified descriptions directly, i.e. without enumerating readings.
