A Formal Semantics for Generating and Editing Plurals

  title={A Formal Semantics for Generating and Editing Plurals},
  author={Paul Piwek},
We present a formal semantics for an objectoriented formalism which allows for the representation of plural objects (such as ‘Three N’, ‘Most of the N’, ‘Some N’,...). The semantics is given in terms of a mapping to a variant of Discourse Representation Theory. It is motivated by its suitability for natural language generation and interactive editing of the representations.
