This paper 1 discusses the use of recursive chunking of large German corpora (over 300 million words) for the identification and partial classification of significant lexical cooc-currences of adjectives and verbs. The goal is to provide a fine-grained syntactic classification of the data at the levels of subcategorization and scrambling. We analyze the(More)
1 Introduction In recent years, there has been rising interest to using evidence derived from automatic syntactic analysis in large-scale corpus studies. Ideally, of course, corpus linguists would prefer to have access to the wealth of structural and featural information provided by a full parser based on a complex grammar formalism. However, to date such(More)
1 Introduction Our approach follows the work of Eckle-Kohler (1999) who used a regular grammar to extract lexicographic information from text corpora. We employ a system that allows to improve her query-based grammar especially with respect to recall and speed without reducing accuracy. In contrast to Eckle-Kohler (1999), we do not attempt to parse a whole(More)
This article deals with techniques for lexical acquisition which allow lexicographers to extract evidence for fine-grained syntactic descriptions of words from corpora. The extraction tools are applied to partially parsed text corpora, and aim to provide the lexicographer with easy to use syntactically pre-classified evidence. As an example we extracted(More)
