A generative perspecl: ive on verbs and their readings

Manfred Stede
1996 International Conference on Natural Language Generation  
We sketch the architecture of a sentence generation module that maps a language-neutral "deep" representation to a language-specific sentence-semantic specification, which is given to a front-end generator. Lexicalizat, ion is tlm main instrument tbr the mapl~ing step, and we examine the role of verb semantics in the process. In particular, we propose a set of rules that derive a range of verb alternations from a single base form, which is one source of lexical paraphrasing in the system.
