42th Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics, pp. 247-254, July 2004

We show that a practical translation of MRS descriptions into normal dominance constraints is feasible. We start from a recent theoretical translation, develop it into a practical system, and apply it to the output of the English Resource Grammar (ERG) on the Redwoods corpus. We validate the assumptions made by the theoretical translation for a large majority of cases; the MRS descriptions computed in all other cases seem to be systematically incomplete.
