MonaLog: a Lightweight System for Natural Language Inference Based on Monotonicity

19 Oct 2019Hai HuQi ChenKyle RichardsonAtreyee MukherjeeLawrence S. MossSandra Kuebler

We present a new logic-based inference engine for natural language inference (NLI) called MonaLog, which is based on natural logic and the monotonicity calculus. In contrast to existing logic-based approaches, our system is intentionally designed to be as lightweight as possible, and operates using a small set of well-known (surface-level) monotonicity facts about quantifiers, lexical items and tokenlevel polarity information...
