Euphoria Semantic Analysis

The semantic analysis produced by the discourse understanding system Euphoria is described. Euphoria produces a semantic analysis spanning several sentences (a discourse) with coreference resolved and implicit arguments made explicit. The semantic analysis uses entity-oriented logical forms, built around a notion of extended entities that use generalized event variables. We describe the treatment of implicit arguments, time expressions, appositives, locational phrases; and higher-order entities ranging from entities derived from adverbs to compound events and paragraph topics.
