Abstract:

The DIALOGIC system translates English sentences into representations of their literal meaning in the context of an utterance These representations or logical forms, are intended to be a purely formal language that is as close as possible to the structure of natural language, while providing the semantic compositionality necessary for meaning-dependent computational processing. The design of DIALOGIC and of its constituent modules was influenced by the goal of using it as the core language-processing component in a variety of systems, some of which are transportable to new domains of application.
