Towards a Tight Integration of Syntactic Parsing with Semantic Disambiguation by means of Declarative Programming (2013)
Yuliya Lierler and Peter Schueller
We propose and advocate the use of an advanced declarative programming paradigm -- answer set programming -- as a uniform platform for integrated approach towards syntax-semantic processing in natural language. We illustrate that (a) the parsing technology based on answer set programming implementation reaches performance sufficient for being a useful NLP tool, and (b) the proposed method for incorporating semantic information from Framenet into syntactic parsing may prove to be useful in allowing semantic-based disambiguation of syntactic structures.
