      ABSTRACT = {It is sometimes claimed (cf. [Mann/Thompson 1988, Scha/Polanyi 1988, Webber 1991, Gardent 1991, Pruest 1992]) that discourse has a tree structure which reflects the semantic structure of discourse. In this paper, I argue that this claim is problematic in cases of discourse multiple dependencies i.e. cases where one discourse segment is semantically related to two discourse segments. I develop a discourse framework which is based on [Scha/Polanyi 1988] but integrates ideas from Feature-based Tree Adjoining Grammars (FTAGs). I then show that this new framework adequately captures multiple dependencies whilst retaining the precise linguistic predictions made by the discourse grammar. In particular, I show how it permits a simple modelling of discourse semantics, discourse coherence and discourse based constraints on anaphora resolution.},
