A4: Comparing Meaning in Context (CoMiC)

Summary

How can meaning be compared in realistic situations, in which ill-formed language or individual differences in situative or world knowledge complicate or even preclude a complete linguistic analysis? This question is the motivation for project A4, investigating which linguistic representations can be used effectively and robustly for comparing the meaning of sentences and text fragments computationally. Furthermore, we are interested in exploring for which types of tasks and contexts such a comparison is feasible using shallow semantic methods.
