Polish negation and Lexical Resource Semantics

Frank Richter and Manfred Sailer

Talk at FGMOL'01 in Helsinki, Finland, on August 10th, 2001.


Using negative concord phenomena in Polish, we introduce and motivate Lexical Resource Semantics (LRS), a new framework for combinatorial semantics with type-theoretic representation languages in HPSG. LRS combines techniques first investigated within theories of semantic underspecification with HPSG-specific formal devices to derive fully specified logical representations of linguistic expressions.
