WordNet (Miller 1995) can be viewed as a rich source of world knowledge structured based on lexico-semantic relations among concepts represented as sets of words that have same meaning (synsets). Each synset has a gloss or a small textual definition and few examples attached to it. We aim at transforming WordNet glosses into a computational representation that enables reasoning mechanisms. In this paper we address the issue of bracketing coordinated compound nouns. The logic form that we use is first order logic and includes syntactic information in the form of positional arguments.
