The realization of singular count nouns without an accompanying determiner inside a PP (determinerless PP, bare PP, Preposition-Noun Combination) has recently attracted some interest in computational linguistics. Yet, the relevant factors for determiner omission remain unclear, and conditions for determiner omission vary from language to language. We(More)
Traditional approaches to prepositions classify preposition lexemes into different semantic classes like spatial, temporal or modal ones. In this paper we reconsider the so-called spatial prepositions and their sub classification. We propose a sense based classification of prepositions using traditional criteria to determine different classes of(More)
Prepositions are highly polysemous. Yet, little effort has been spent to develop languagespecific annotation schemata for preposition senses to systematically represent and analyze the polysemy of prepositions in large corpora. In this paper, we present an annotation schema for preposition senses in German. The annotation schema includes a hierarchical(More)
This paper investigates the impact of modality markers on the conditional interpretation of the German preposition ohne (‘without’). It tackles the question whether it is the preposition itself that possesses a conditional sense or whether it may be due to a modal context that the interpretation arises. The paper presents an annotation study for modality(More)
There are two ways to express definiteness in Danish, which makes it problematic for statistical machine translation (SMT) from English, since the wrong realisation can be chosen. We present a part-of-speechbased method for identifying and transforming English definite NPs that would likely be expressed in a different way in Danish. The transformed English(More)
