## Introduction

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 and presupposition resolution, and quantifier scope resolution. Computational semantics has points of contact with the areas of lexical semantics, discourse semantics, formal semantics, knowledge representation and automated reasoning.
