Extraction of Semantic Representations from Syntactic CMU Link Grammar linkages

Ian Marshall, Eva Safar

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


A method for generating a Discourse Representation Structure (DRS) semantic representation from the output of the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) link grammar parser is presented. The techniques used in extracting information from the link grammar representation and construction of the DRS are detailed. The system is a major component of the EU funded ViSiCAST (Virtual Signing: Capture, Animation, Storage and Transmission) project 1 for presenting English text as sign language presentations.
