Minimal recursion semantics (MRS) is a framework for computational semantics. It can be implemented in typed feature structure formalisms such as head-driven phrase structure grammar and lexical functional grammar. It is suitable for computational language parsing and natural language generation.[1] MRS enables a simple formulation of the grammatical constraints on lexical and phrasal semantics, including the principles of semantic composition.
