Consider these sentences and their MRSs (edit: sorry the right side is clipped; you should be able to click and see the full image, or just reparse the sentences at http://delph-in.github.io/delphin-viz/demo)
- Browne merely doesn’t work.
- Browne doesn’t merely work.
These clearly have different entailments, and there are differences in the respective MRSs, but I’m confused about the first one. Can someone remind me why the ARG1 of
_mere_a_1 selects the ARG0 of
e2) and not of
e10), which it shares a label with? (The second MRS is as I would expect.)
This construction causes problems with my selection of a representative node for DMRS (
neg should be the DMRS top node, I think, and not
_mere_a_1, but currently it’s the other way around). I want to know if this is a bug in the ERG or if I should find a way to special-case this.
