We introduce a new method for framesemantic parsing that significantly improves the prior state of the art. [] Key Method The two networks are integrated into a single model via knowledge distillation, and a unified graphical model is employed to jointly decode frames and semantic roles during inference. Experiments on the standard FrameNet data show that our model significantly outperforms existing neural and non-neural approaches, achieving a 5.7 F1 gain over the current state of the art, for full frame…

This work exploits a graph-based method, regarding frame semantic parsing as a graph construction problem, and proposes an end-to-end neural model to tackle the task jointly, resulting in better performance than pipeline models.

Joint Multi-Decoder Framework with Hierarchical Pointer Network for Frame Semantic Parsing

A novel architecture based on multi-decoder strategy to handle three subtasks, namely frame identification, argument identification and role classification is introduced and a hierarchical pointer network for argument identification is designed which reduces the computational complexity.

Jointly Predicting Predicates and Arguments in Neural Semantic Role Labeling

This work proposes an end-to-end approach for jointly predicting all predicates, arguments spans, and the relations between them, and makes independent decisions about what relationship, if any, holds between every possible word-span pair.

A Double-Graph Based Framework for Frame Semantic Parsing

This paper proposes a Knowledge-guided Incremental semantic parser with Double-graph (KID), a heterogeneous graph containing both frames and FEs (Frame Elements) built on the frame knowledge so that it can derive knowledge-enhanced representations for frames andFEs.

The purpose of this study is to analyze the task complexity, to highlight the factors that make Semantic Frame parsing a difficult task and to provide detailed evaluations of the performance on different types of frames and sentences.

Debugging Frame Semantic Role Labeling

It is proved that syntactic pre-processing plays a major role in the performances of statistical classifiers to argument identification, and the core reasons of syntactic mismatch between dependency parsers output and FrameNet syntactic formalism are discussed.

A new method for semantic role labeling in which arguments and semantic roles are jointly embedded in a shared vector space for a given predicate, which is based on a neural network designed for the SRL task.

The Importance of Syntactic Parsing and Inference in Semantic Role Labeling

It is shown that full syntactic parsing information is, by far, most relevant in identifying the argument, especially in the very first stagethe pruning stage, and an effective and simple approach of combining different semantic role labeling systems through joint inference is proposed, which significantly improves its performance.

A Global Joint Model for Semantic Role Labeling

We present a model for semantic role labeling that effectively captures the linguistic intuition that a semantic argument frame is a joint structure, with strong dependencies among the arguments. We

We propose semantic role features for a Tree-to-String transducer to model the reordering/deletion of source-side semantic roles. These semantic features, as well as the Tree-to-String templates, are
