Hi Francis -
As an example of the use of ACE and the ERG in such a paraphrasing setup, you might look at the `openproof' subdirectory, where I defined a set of paraphrase rules for the logic-education application, and use the following pipeline:
echo "B is a cube and C is a cube." | ace -g erg.dat -f | ace -g openproof/paraphrase-op.dat --transfer-config openproof/rules.all | ace -g erg.dat -e > /tmp/sents.txt

> ACE has a couple of mechanisms for automatically applying transfer rules, but they only work with unambiguous transfer rule sets. You can load transfer rules with tdl status "fixup-rule" to make them apply before generation or tdl status "cleanup-rule" to make them apply after parsing (and also after generation, though most people don't look at the MRS that is generated with a realization). I don't think this will work for you though because when the rules are ambiguous, the system just takes the first result (and prints a warning).
Thanks for the explanation.

Then we will do that.
