The work presented in this paper explores a supervised method for learning a probabilistic model of a lexicon of VerbNet classes. We intend for the probabilistic model to provide a probability distribution of verb-class associations, over known and unknown verbs, including polysemous words. In our approach, training instances are obtained from an existing lexicon and/or from an annotated corpus, while the features, which represent syntactic frames, semantic similarity, and selectional… CONTINUE READING
