Abstract : Interaction Grammars are a grammatical formalism based on the notion of polarities.
Polarities express the resource sensitivity of natural languages by modelling the distinction between saturated and unsaturated syntactic structures.
A sentence-s syntactic composition is represented as an ``electrostatic- process guided by the neutralization of polarities.
At the heart of the formalism, there is also the notion of underspecification: syntactic structures are not completely specified trees but tree descriptions.
Then, parsing appears as a process of building tree description models.
Semantics is represented at a level independent of the syntactic level, but based on the same notions of polarity and description with a difference: descriptions are not tree descriptions but directed acyclic graph DAG descriptions.
The interface between the two levels is realized in a flexible way by a function that links every syntactic node to at most one semantic node.
