The Proposition Bank project takes a practical approach to semantic representation, adding a layer of predicate-argument information, or semantic role labels, to the syntactic structures of the Penn Treebank. The resulting resource can be thought of as shallow, in that it does not represent coreference, quantification, and many other higher-order phenomena, but also broad, in that it covers every instance of every verb in the corpus and allows representative statistics to be calculated.

Persian Proposition Bank
This paper describes the procedure of semantic role labeling and the development of the first manually annotated Persian Proposition Bank (PerPB) which added a layer of predicate-argument informationExpand
Generalizing the semantic roles in the Chinese Proposition Bank
TLDR
This article describes the effort to “re-annotate” the CPB with a set of “global” semantic roles that are predicate-independent and investigates their impact on automatic semantic role labeling systems. Expand
Annotating the argument structure of deverbal nominalizations in Spanish
TLDR
The methodology followed to annotate the argument structure and thematic roles of deverbal nominalizations in the Spanish AnCora-Es corpus is presented and it is the first Spanish corpus with this kind of information that is freely available. Expand
From Treebank to Propbank: A Semantic-Role and VerbNet Corpus for Danish
  • E. Bick
  • Computer Science
  • NODALIDA
  • 2017
TLDR
This paper presents the first version of a Danish Propbank/VerbNet corpus, annotated at both the morphosyntactic, dependency and semantic levels, and provides a statistical break-down of frames and roles for both the corpus as a whole and across different text types. Expand
Adding semantic roles to the Chinese Treebank
TLDR
This discussion focuses on the syntactic variations in the realization of the arguments as well as the approach to annotating dislocated and discontinuous arguments, and the creation of a lexical database of frame files and its role in guiding predicate-argument annotation. Expand
Automatic Semantic Role Labeling for Chinese Verbs
TLDR
The results using hand-crafted parses are slightly higher than the results reported for the state-of-the-art semantic role labeling systems for English using the Penn English Proposition Bank data, even though the Chinese Proposition Bank is smaller in size. Expand
PropBank: Semantics of New Predicate Types
TLDR
This research focuses on expanding PropBank, a corpus annotated with predicate argument structures, with new predicate types; namely, noun, adjective and complex predicates, such as Light Verb Constructions, in order for PropBank to reach the same level of coverage and continue to serve as the bedrock for Abstract Meaning Representation.

Issues in Synchronizing the English Treebank and PropBank
TLDR
The types of mismatches between the syntactic bracketing and the semantic role labeling that can be found are discussed, and the plans for reconciling them are discussed. Expand
A PropBank for Portuguese: the CINTIL-PropBank
TLDR
CINTIL-PropBank is reported on, which makes possible to obtain a complete PropBank with both syntactic and semantic levels of linguistic annotation, and presents itself as a great resource to train a semantic role labeller. Expand
A Proposition Bank of Urdu
TLDR
It is shown that the annotators share similar understanding of the annotation guidelines and of the linguistic phenomena present in the language, and the present size of this PropBank is around 180,000 tokens which is double-propbanked by the two annotators for simple predicates. Expand

TLDR
An overview of the second phase of PropBank Annotation, PropBank II, which is being applied to English and Chinese, and includes (Neodavidsonian) eventuality variables, nominal references, sense tagging, and connections to the Penn Discourse Treebank (PDTB), a project for annotating discourse connectives and their arguments.

Annotating the Propositions in the Penn Chinese Treebank
TLDR
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
The Necessity of Parsing for Predicate Argument Recognition
TLDR
The effect of parser accuracy on these systems' performance is quantified, and the question of whether a flatter "chunked" representation of the input can be as effective for the purposes of semantic role identification is examined. Expand

This article refine the formulation of the problem of prepositional phrase (PP) attachment as a four-way disambiguation problem, and introduces a method to learn arguments and adjuncts based on a definition of arguments as a vector of features. Expand

TLDR
This paper describes an approach based on two principles, rely on local morpho-syntactic cues to structure rather than trying to parse entire sentences, and treat these cues as probabilistic rather than absolute indicators of syntactic structure. Expand
Head-Driven Statistical Models for Natural Language Parsing
  • M. Collins
  • Computer Science

  • 2003
TLDR
Three statistical models for natural language parsing are described, leading to approaches in which a parse tree is represented as the sequence of decisions corresponding to a head-centered, top-down derivation of the tree. Expand
Extended Lexical-Semantic Classification of English Verbs
TLDR
A substantial extension to Levin's taxonomy of verbs is presented which incorporates 57 novel classes for verbs not covered (comprehensively) by Levin and also introduces 106 novel diathesis alternations, created as a side product of constructing the new classes. Expand
