Abstract
This chapter introduces a variant of the principle of compositionality in quantitative text semantics as an alternative to the bag-of-features approach. The variant includes e®ects of context-sensitive interpretation as well as proces- ses of meaning constitution and change in the sense of usage-based semantics. Its starting point is a combination of semantic space modeling and text structure anal- ysis. The principle is implemented by means of a hierarchical constraint satisfac- tion process which utilizes the notion of hierarchical text structure superimposed by graph-inducing coherence relations. The major contribution of the chapter is a conceptualization and formalization of the principle of compositionality in terms of semantic spaces which tackles some well known de¯cits of existing approaches. In particular this relates to the missing linguistic interpretability of statistical meaning representations.
