Semantics of VP coordination in LTAG

  title={Semantics of VP coordination in LTAG},
  author={Eva Banik},
This paper proposes to give an analysis of VP coordination in the LTAG semantics framework of (Kallmeyer and Joshi, 2003). First the syntax of VP coordination is described using an operation called conjoin. Then we discuss interactions of coordination scope and quantifier scope in simple sentences and their analysis in LTAG. Finally we point out coordination scope ambiguities in embedded sentences that present a problem for the present analysis.
