  • This work determines the degree of compositionality of German particle verbs by two soft clustering approaches. We assume that the more compositional a particle verb is, the more often it appears in the same cluster with its base verb, after applying a probability threshold to establish cluster membership. As German particle verbs are difficult to approach automatically at the syntax-semantics interface, because they typically change the subcategorisation behaviour in comparison to their base… CONTINUE READING
