Semantic Role Labeling by Tagging Syntactic Chunks

  title={Semantic Role Labeling by Tagging Syntactic Chunks},
  author={Kadri Hacioglu and Sameer Pradhan and Wayne H. Ward and James H. Martin and Daniel Jurafsky},
In this paper, we present a semantic role labeler (or chunker) that groups syntactic chunks (i.e. base phrases) into the arguments of a predicate.

This amounts to tagging syntactic chunks with semantic labels using the IOB representation. The… CONTINUE READING
