Classifying Particle Semantics In English Verb-Particle Constructions

  title={Classifying Particle Semantics In English Verb-Particle Constructions},
  author={Paul Cook and Suzanne Stevenson},
Previous computational work on learning the semantic properties of verb-particle constructions (VPCs) has focused on their compositionality, and has left unaddressed the issue of which meaning of the component words is being used in a given VPC. We develop a feature space for use in classification of the sense contributed by the particle in a VPC, and test this on VPCs using the particle up. The features that capture linguistic properties of VPCs that are relevant to the semantics of the… CONTINUE READING
