This paper introduces the task of questionanswer driven semantic role labeling (QA-SRL), where question-answer pairs are used to represent predicate-argument structure. [...] Key Method It also allows for scalable data collection by annotators with very little training and no linguistic expertise. We gather data in two domains, newswire text and Wikipedia articles, and introduce simple classifierbased models for predicting which questions to ask and what their answers should be. Our results show that non-expert…Expand
ASQ: Automatically Generating Question-Answer Pairs using AMRs
TLDR
This work introduces ASQ, a tool to automatically mine questions and answers from a sentence, using its Abstract Meaning Representation (AMR), making it faster and costeffective, without compromising on the quality and validity of the question-answer pairs thus obtained. Expand
Annotating and Modeling Shallow Semantics Directly from Text
TLDR
This thesis introduces question-answer driven semantic role labeling (QA-SRL), an annotation framework that allows us to gather SRL information from non-expert annotators, and develops two general-purpose, syntax-independent neural models that lead to significant performance gains. Expand
Incidental Supervision from Question-Answering Signals
TLDR
This paper studies the case where the annotations are in the format of question-answering (QA) and proposes an effective way to learn useful representations for other tasks and finds that the representation retrieved from question-answer meaning representation (QAMR) data can almost universally improve on a wide range of tasks.

Semantic Role Labeling (SRL) aims at recognizing the predicate-argument structure of a sentence and can be decomposed into two subtasks: predicate disambiguation and argument labeling. Prior workExpand
Crowdsourcing Question-Answer Meaning Representations
TLDR
A crowdsourcing scheme is developed to show that QAMRs can be labeled with very little training, and a qualitative analysis demonstrates that the crowd-generated question-answer pairs cover the vast majority of predicate-argument relationships in existing datasets. Expand
QANom: Question-Answer driven SRL for Nominalizations
We propose a new semantic scheme for capturing predicate-argument relations for nominalizations, termed QANom. This scheme extends the QA-SRL formalism (He et al., 2015), modeling the relationsExpand
Asking It All: Generating Contextualized Questions for any Semantic Role
Asking questions about a situation is an inherent step towards understanding it. To this end, we introduce the task of role question generation, which, given a predicate mention and a passage,Expand
Knowledge-based Supervision for Domain-adaptive Semantic Role Labeling
TLDR
Linked lexical knowledge bases are used as a basis for automatic training data generation across languages and domains to improve lexicon coverage and training data coverage for SRL. Expand
Semantic Role Labeling with Pretrained Language Models for Known and Unknown Predicates
TLDR
The first full pipeline for semantic role labelling of Russian texts is built, and it is shown that embeddings generated by deep pretrained language models are superior to classical shallowembeddings for argument classification of both “known” and “unknown” predicates. Expand
Inducing Semantic Roles Without Syntax
TLDR
It is shown it is possible to automatically induce semantic roles from QA-SRL, a scalable and ontology-free semantic annotation scheme that uses question-answer pairs to represent predicate-argument structure, and this method outperforms all previous models as well as a new state-of-the-art baseline over gold syntax.

Developing a large semantically annotated corpus
TLDR
It is argued that a bootstrapping approach comprising state-of-the-art NLP tools for parsing and semantic interpretation, in combination with a wiki-like interface for collaborative annotation of experts, and a game with a purpose for crowdsourcing, are the starting ingredients for fulfilling this enterprise.

The Proposition Bank: An Annotated Corpus of Semantic Roles
TLDR
An automatic system for semantic role tagging trained on the corpus is described and the effect on its performance of various types of information is discussed, including a comparison of full syntactic parsing with a flat representation and the contribution of the empty trace categories of the treebank.

Dependency-based Semantic Role Labeling of PropBank
TLDR
This work presents a PropBank semantic role labeling system for English that is integrated with a dependency parser and is the first dependency-based semantic role labeler for PropBank that rivals constituent-based systems in terms of performance. Expand
Semantic Role Labeling
TLDR
This chapter presents the application of the ETL approach to semantic role labeling (SRL) and evaluates the performance of ETL over two English language corpora: CoNLL-2004 and CoNll-2005. Expand
Recognizing Implied Predicate-Argument Relationships in Textual Inference
TLDR
This work investigates implied predicate-argument relationships which are not explicitly expressed in syntactic structure in the context of textual inference scenarios, and provides a large and freely available evaluation dataset for the task setting and proposes methods to cope with it. Expand

TLDR
Two Bayesian models for unsupervised semantic role labeling (SRL) task are introduced, with the coupled model consistently outperforming the factored counterpart in all experimental set-ups. Expand
Calibrating Features for Semantic Role Labeling
This paper takes a critical look at the features used in the semantic role tagging literature and show that the information in the input, generally a syntactic parse tree, has yet to be fullyExpand
From TreeBank to PropBank
TLDR
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
Joint A* CCG Parsing and Semantic Role Labelling
TLDR
A joint model using CCG is introduced, which is motivated by the close link between CCG syntax and semantics and is the first to substantially improve both syntactic and semantic accuracy over a comparable pipeline, and also achieves state-of-the-art results for a nonensemble semantic role labelling model.
