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.
