Eighth International Conference on Computational Semantics (IWCS-8 2009)
Tilburg University, Netherlands, January 7-9, 2009


This paper presents a syntactic parsing based system for the semantic interpretation of Dutch spoken language. The semantic representation, based on first-order logic, is obtained in two stages. In the first stage, the utterances are syntactically parsed. In the second stage, the most probable derivation obtained in the syntactic parsing is used to construct the semantic representation. On a dataset of 160 utterances, the system obtains an accuracy of 88.1% on recovering complete semantic representations.
