Abstract:
Complex events can often be treated as single units for purposes of cognitive processing. This paper presents a scheme for representing events that was used in the creation of the program IPP (the Integrated Partial Parser). This scheme, in effect, consists of rules for the creation of a set of primitive-like elements for a given domain. The specific structures needed to represent events in one domain, news stories about international terrorism, are presented.
