Robust Parsing of Utterances in Negotiative Dialogue

Johan Boye, Mats Wiren

This paper presents an algorithm for domain-dependent parsing of utterances in negotiative dialogue. To represent such utterances, the algorithm outputs semantic expressions that are more expressive than propositional slot-filler structures. It is very fast and robust, yet precise and capable of correctly combining information from different utterance fragments.
