Semantic analysis of texts is a key issue for the natural language processing community. However, this analysis is generally based on a deeply-intertwined syntactic and semantic process, which makes it not easily adaptable and reusable from a practical point of view. This represents an obstacle to the wide development, use and update of semantic analyzers. This paper presents a modular semantic analysis pipeline that aims at extracting logical representations from free text based on dependency
