Computational semantics is the study of how to automate the process of constructing and reasoning with meaning representations of natural language expressions. Some traditional topics of interest are: construction of meaning representations, semantic underspecification, anaphora resolution, presupposition projection, and quantifier scope resolution. Computational semantics has points of contact with the areas of lexical semantics (word sense disambiguation and role labelling), discourse semantics, formal semantics, knowledge representation and automated reasoning. Since 1999 there is an ACL special interest group on computational semantics SIGSEM.
