The f-structure encodes grammatical functions as well as semantically relevant features like tense and number. The c-structure, in conjunction with the -mapping, provides the information on linear precedence necessary for semantic scope and anaphora resolution. In this paper, we present a system in which a stochastic LFG-like grammar of English provides the input to the se- mantic processing. The LFG-like grammar uses stochastic methods to create a c-structure and a proto f-structure. A set of ordered rewrite rules augments and reconfigures the proto f-structure to add more information to the stochas- tic output, thereby creating true LFG f-structures with all of the features that the semantics requires. Evaluation of the resulting derived f-structures and of the semantic representations based on them indicates that the stochastic LFG- like grammar can be used to produce input to the semantics. These grammars combine the advantages of LFG structures, e.g. the explicit encoding of gram- matical functions, with the advantages of stochastic systems, e.g. providing connected parses in the face of less-than-ideal input.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2009</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>King, Tracy Holloway</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>King, Tracy Holloway</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:alternative>Die Anpassung von stochastischem LFG Input fuer die Semantik</dcterms:alternative> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: Proceedings of LFG09 [Elektronische Ressource] / Miriam Butt ...
