PropBank as a Bootstrap for Richer Annotation Schemes

  title={PropBank as a Bootstrap for Richer Annotation Schemes},
  author={Paul R. Kingsbury and Benjamin Snyder and Nianwen Xue and Martha Palmer}
The successof interlingual annotationdependscrucially on agreementas to the entities to be annotated,both in termsof the categoriesof entitiesand in termsof the namesof the entities. Two independentannotationefforts at Pennresultedin annotationswhich had a comfortable amountof overlapbut which still disagreedsubstantiallyon eventhe categoriesto be marked. The English annotation took a very rich approachto annotation,marking a great many relationshipswhich werenot explicitly mentionedin… Expand

Interlingual annotation of parallel text corpora: a new framework for annotation and evaluation
The work described below constitutes the first effort of any kind to annotate multiple translations of foreign-language texts with interlingual content, with three levels of representation: deep syntactic dependencies, intermediate semantic representations, and a normalized representation that unifies conversives, nonliteral language, and paraphrase.

Interlingual annotation of parallel text corpora : a new framework for annotation and evaluation
This paper focuses on an important step in the creation of a system of meaning representation and the development of semantically annotated parallel corpora, for use in applications such as machineExpand

The analyzer developed in this research will help the construction of Korean PropBank and will finally play a big role in Korean semantic role labeling. Expand
A Method for Building Ontology Property Explanations
A model is suggested for explaining ontology properties with not only lexical senses such as verb senses, but also arguments to help linkin g ontology Properties and predicates in natural languages. Expand
Similar Verb Words Extraction based on their Case Frame Structure
요 약 한국어 Propbank를 구축하기 위해서는 유사 동사를 군집화하고 군집에 포함되는 동사들의 구문 및 의 미 특성을 모아놓은 정보가 필요하다. 본 연구에서는 이러한 군집화의 초기 단계로써 개별 동사들의 격틀 구조에 기반하여 동사간의 유사도를 추정하여 유사 동사를 추출하고자 하였다. 본 연구는 개별 동사의 격 틀 정보를 추출하기 위하여 세종 계획의Expand

From TreeBank to PropBank
This paper describes the approach to the development of a Proposition Bank, which involves the addition of semantic information to the Penn English Treebank and introduces metaframes as a technique for handling similar frames among near− synonymous verbs. Expand
Annotating the Propositions in the Penn Chinese Treebank
It is described how diathesis alternation patterns can be used to make coarse sense distinctions for Chinese verbs as a necessary step in annotating the predicate-structure of Chinese verbs. 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
Class-Based Construction of a Verb Lexicon
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 lexicalExpand
