In extitA Constraint-Based Treatment of Descriptions, we presented a constraint-based method for enumerating the models satisfying a given tree description and described its application to the underspecified semantic representation of discourse advocated by Gardent & Webber (1998). In this paper, we indicate how the approach may be further extended to support discourse level extitincremental processing.
extbfKeywords: incremental processing, underspecified representations, tree descriptions, dominance constraints, constraint programming, discourse semantics.
