The TRIPS parser is a broad-coverage domain-general deep semantic parser that produces logical forms grounded in a general ontology. While using many of the techniques of modern syntactic theory, the system is semantically driven and uses many of the ideas of construction grammar. Unlike most work in semantic parsing, which is limited to specific simple domains, the TRIPS parser performs well in many diverse domains, after incorporating domain-specific named entity recognition where needed. The TRIPS grammar uses syntactic, semantic and ontological constraints simultaneously to construct semantically accurate parses, and includes many rules that capture the common constructions of everyday spoken language.
