Coupling Trees and Frames through XMG

Abstract : This work presents first results on the integration of frame-based representations into the lexical framework of eXtensible Meta-Grammar (XMG). Originally XMG supported tree-based syntactic structures and underspecified representations of predicate-logical formulae, but the representation of frames as a sort of typed feature structures failed due to reasons of usability and completeness. Therefore, after having explored strategies to simulate frames within the original XMG, we introduce an extension that is capable of handling frames directly by means of a novel -dimension. The -dimension can be also applied to recent accounts of morphological decomposition, as we show using a refined version of the -dimension from [4]. The presented extensions to XMG are fully operational in a new prototype.
