    Abstract

    This paper reports on the development of a system that automatically constructs representations of the meaning of sentences using rules of grammar and a dictionary of word meanings. The meanings of words and sentences are expressed using an extension of knowledge graphs, a semantic network formalism. Furthermore the system contains an algorithm that calculates an evaluation measure for alternative sentence graphs of one sentence, making it possible to disambiguate the meaning of sentences on semantical grounds.
