The Semantic Interpretation of Nominal Compounds

Timothy W. Finin

This paper briefly introduces an approach to the problem of building semantic interpretations of nominal compounds, i.e. sequences of two or more nouns related through modification. Examples of the kinds of nominal compounds dealt with are: "engine repairs", "aircraft flight arrival", "aluminum water pump", and "noun noun modification".
