Sensala: a Dynamic Semantics System for Natural Language Processing

Daniyar Itegulov, Ekaterina Lebedeva, Bruno Woltzenlogel Paleo


Abstract
Here we describe Sensala , an open source framework for the semantic interpretation of natural language that provides the logical meaning of a given text. The framework’s theory is based on a lambda calculus with exception handling and uses contexts, continuations, events and dependent types to handle a wide range of complex linguistic phenomena, such as donkey anaphora, verb phrase anaphora, propositional anaphora, presuppositions and implicatures.
