Annotating and Reasoning about Time and Events

Jerry R. Hobbs and James Pustejovsky

In this paper we discuss the relationship between TimeML, a rich specification language for event and temporal expressions in text, and the interpretation of these expressions in a temporal semantics. Specifically, we propose to demonstrate how a TimeML markup of text is interpreted within the DAML-Time Ontology and time framework of Hobbs (2002). We demonstrate the expressiveness of TimeML in English text, and discuss the relevance to content specification in the semantic web.
