Abstract : Computational semantics has long relied upon the Montague correspondance between syntax and semantics, which is not by itself well suited for the computing of some phenomena, such as logical polysemy, addressed by recent advances in lexical semantics. Our aim is to integrate the results of lexical semantics studies such as the Generative Lexicon Theory in a straightforward way with the existing computing of logical forms, in order to form a Montagovian framework for lexical semantics. In addition, we will outline a way to integrate other kinds of semantic information.
