The valency theory as a part of the theory of Functional Generative Description ([16]) of language meaning has been around for some time ([14]). However, it is for the first time that a large-scale corpus (the Prague Dependency Treebank (PDT, [4]) has been fully annotated with valency information based on this theory, i.e., with fully referenced valency(More)
We present the Prague Dependency Treebank 2.5, the newest version of PDT and the first to be released under a free license. We show the benefits of PDT 2.5 in comparison to other state-of-the-art treebanks. We present the new features of the 2.5 release, how they were obtained and how reliably they are annotated. We also show how they can be used in queries(More)
We introduce a substantial update of the Prague Czech-English Dependency Treebank, a parallel corpus manually annotated at the deep syntactic layer of linguistic representation. The English part consists of the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) section of the Penn Treebank. The Czech part was translated from the English source sentence by sentence. This paper gives(More)
The requirements of the depth and precision of annotation vary for different intended uses of the corpus but it has been commonly accepted nowadays that the standard annotations of surface structure are only the first steps in a more ambitious research program, aiming at a creation of advanced resources for most different systems of natural language(More)
i ]~e describe the linguistic background of a Czech-to-Russian ~T system, stressing its features resulting from the closed relatedness of the two languages, above all the possibility of a minimization of the transfer. Related linguistic problems are analyzed within the MT project, as well as in the perspective of contrastive linguistics. 1. The system of(More)
In this paper we show the relation between the "surface (morphological) cases" and "deep cases" (participants), and the possible way to automate the creation of a syntactic dictionary provided with frames containing information about deep cases and their morphemic counterparts of particular lexical items (Czech verbs).
1 Puzzles Controversies and puzzles concerning possible inversion around the copula in English copula might be illuminated by comparison with some aspects of the behavior of Russian copular sentences. The puzzles I am concerned with arise in the context of the phenomenon of connectivity in specificational pseudoclefts in English, whose challenging nature(More)
