- In this paper, we develop a system of rewriting rules, similar to the Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar and Montague Grammar, that operate directly on fragments of written text transforming it into well-formed expressions of a formal meaning representation language. We consider the task of translating a sentence into a formula of logic as being directly influenced by the context of the surrounding text. The resulting representation captures, besides the logical contents of each proposition, also the various relations in which they remain with respect to one another.
