If you have a question about this talk, please contact Marinela Parovic.

This talk will discuss symbolic representations of sentences in context, ranging from universal dependencies to abstract meaning representations (AMR), and examine their capability for capturing certain aspects of meaning. A main focus will be the ways in which AMR ’s can be expanded to encompass figurative language, the recovery of implicit arguments and relations between events. These examples will be primarily in English, and indeed some features of AMR are fairly English-centric. The talk will conclude by introducing Uniform Meaning Representations, a multi-sentence annotation scheme that is revising AMR ’s to make them more suitable for other languages, especially low resource languages, and expanding the annotation guidelines to include Number, Tense, Aspect and Modality as well as Temporal Relations.
