Bridging the Gap Between Underspecification Formalisms: Hole Semantics as Dominance Constraints

Alexander Koller, Joachim Niehren, Stefan Thater

Meeting of the European Chapter of the Association of Computational Linguistics, pp. 195-202, April 2003

We define a back-and-forth translation between Hole Semantics and dominance constraints, two formalisms used in underspecified semantics. There are fundamental differences between the two, but we show that they disappear on practically useful descriptions. Our encoding bridges a gap between two underspecification formalisms, and speeds up the processing of Hole Semantics.
