We present an approach to building a verb lexicon compatible with WordNet but with explicitly stated syntactic and semantic information, using Levin verb classes to systematically construct lexical entries. [...] Key Method The syntactic frames for the verb classes are represented by a Lexicalized Tree Adjoining Grammar augmented with semantic predicates, which allows a compositional interpretation.Expand
Integrating compositional semantics into a verb lexicon
TLDR
This work has used Lexicalized Tree Adjoining Grammars to capture the syntax associated with each verb class and has augmented the trees to include selectional restrictions. Expand
Extending a Verb-lexicon Using a Semantically Annotated Corpus
This paper describes the association of an hierarchical verb lexicon, VerbNet, with a semantically annotated corpus, the Proposition Bank. It focuses on comparisons of the syntactic coverage of theExpand
Building lexical semantic representations for Natural Language instructions
TLDR
This work has coupled the parser LCFLEX with a lexicon and ontology derived from two lexical resources, Verb-Net for verbs and CoreLex for nouns, to automatically build a corpus of instructional text annotated with lexical semantics information. Expand
Deriving verb-meaning clusters from syntactic structure
This paper presents a methodology for using the argument structure of sentences, as encoded by the PropBank project, to develop clusters of verbs with similar meaning and usage. These clusters can beExpand
Assigning XTAG Trees to VerbNet
TLDR
This mapping between complementary resources allowed us to increase the syntactic coverage of the verb lexicon by capturing transformations of the basic syntactic description of the verbs present in VerbNet. Expand
Building a Large Lexicon of Complex Valency Frames
TLDR
The main features of the lexicon entries are designed to bring important semantic information to computer processing of predicate constructions in running texts and include two-level semantic labels with linkage to the Princeton and EuroWordNet hierarchy. Expand
Using prepositions to extend a verb lexicon
TLDR
This paper presents a detailed account of prepositional mismatch between the authors' handcrafted verb lexicon and a semantically annotated corpus to create a more robust resource capable of better semantic predictions based on the verb-preposition relations. Expand
Extracting a Verb Lexicon for Deep Parsing from FrameNet
We examine the feasibility of harvesting a wide-coverage lexicon of English verbs from the FrameNet semantically annotated corpus, intended for use in a practical natural language understanding (NLU)Expand
Towards Free-text Semantic Parsing: A Unified Framework Based on FrameNet, VerbNet and PropBank
TLDR
A robust semantic parser is described that uses a broad knowledge base created by interconnecting three major resources: FrameNet, VerbNet and PropBank to increase the verb coverage and also to test the effectiveness of the approach. Expand
Question Answering with Lexical Chains Propagating Verb Arguments
TLDR
An algorithm for propagating verb arguments along lexical chains consisting of WordNet relations using VerbNet syntactic patterns that is used in an in-house Question Answering system for re-ranking the set of candidate answers. Expand

Building a class-based verb lexicon using TAGs
TLDR
This work has used a Lexicalized Tree Adjoining Grammar to capture the syntax associated with each verb class and has added semantic predicates to each tree, which allow for a compositional interpretation. Expand
Sentence Planning as Description Using Tree Adjoining Grammar
TLDR
This approach captures naturally and elegantly the interaction between pragmatic and syntactic constraints on descriptions in a sentence, and the inferential interactions between multiple descriptions inA sentence. Expand
Alternations and Verb Semantic Classes for French: Analysis and Class Formation
TLDR
This paper shows how alternations can be defined for French, what their semantic properties are and how verb semantic classes can be constructed from syntactic criteria following and proposes a method which combines these two approaches to form verb semanticclasses better suited for natural language processing.

TLDR
Beth Levin shows how identifying verbs with similar syntactic behavior provides an effective means of distinguishing semantically coherent verb classes, and isolates these classes by examining verb behavior with respect to a wide range of syntactic alternations that reflect verb meaning. Expand
