Cross-lingual annotation: a road map for low- and no-resource languages

no code implementations DMR (COLING) 2020 Meagan Vigus, Jens E. L. Van Gysel, Tim O’Gorman, Andrew Cowell, Rosa Vallejos, William Croft

This paper presents a “road map” for the annotation of semantic categories in typologically diverse languages, with potentially few linguistic resources, and often no existing computational resources.

Theoretical and Practical Issues in the Semantic Annotation of Four Indigenous Languages

no code implementations EMNLP (LAW, DMR) 2021 Jens E. L. Van Gysel, Meagan Vigus, Lukas Denk, Andrew Cowell, Rosa Vallejos, Tim O’Gorman, William Croft

Computational resources such as semantically annotated corpora can play an important role in enabling speakers of indigenous minority languages to participate in government, education, and other domains of public life in their own language.

Representing constructional metaphors

no code implementations DMR (COLING) 2020 Pavlina Kalm, Michael Regan, Sook-kyung Lee, Chris Peverada, William Croft

This paper introduces a representation and annotation scheme for argument structure constructions that are used metaphorically with verbs in different semantic domains.

How individuals change language

no code implementations20 Apr 2021 Richard A Blythe, William Croft

Languages emerge and change over time at the population level though interactions between individual speakers.

A Dependency Structure Annotation for Modality

no code implementations WS 2019 Meagan Vigus, Jens E. L. Van Gysel, William Croft

This paper presents an annotation scheme for modality that employs a dependency structure.

Event Structure Representation: Between Verbs and Argument Structure Constructions

no code implementations WS 2019 Pavlina Kalm, Michael Regan, William Croft

This paper proposes a novel representation of event structure by separating verbal semantics and the meaning of argument structure constructions that verbs occur in.

Annotation of Tense and Aspect Semantics for Sentential AMR

no code implementations COLING 2018 Lucia Donatelli, Michael Regan, William Croft, Nathan Schneider

Although English grammar encodes a number of semantic contrasts with tense and aspect marking, these semantics are currently ignored by Abstract Meaning Representation (AMR) annotations.

Entity Typing
