On the edge between nouns and verbs. The heterogeneous behavior of Spanish deverbal nominalizations empirically verified

Elisa Bekaert, Renata Enghels
2018 Language Sciences  
Besides offering an in-depth quantitative and qualitative description of a set of Spanish nominals, it empirically verifies to what extent the more "nouny" items more frequently adopt nominal features  ...  The following properties are analyzed: determination, modification, number, and argument structure.  ...  Loss of verbal features: the Argument Structure We already know that Spanish deverbal nominalizations are strongly nominalized.  ...

(No) competition between deverbal nouns and nominalized infinitives in Spanish

Barbara Schirakowski
2020 Borealis: An International Journal of Hispanic Linguistics  
The results show that deverbal nouns prefer but are not limited to realizing the lower argument of the base, whereas nominalized infinitives are mostly restricted to realizing the higher argument.  ...  The study, thus, also addresses a number of methodological issues in the study of event nominals.  ...  two arguments of the base surfaces in the nominalized structure.  ...

Exploiting Lexical Conceptual Structure for Paraphrase Generation [chapter]

Atsushi Fujita, Kentaro Inui, Yuji Matsumoto
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Experimental results justify that syntactic and semantic properties of verbs encoded in LCS are useful to semantically constrain the syntactic transformation in paraphrase generation.  ...  Lexical Conceptual Structure (LCS) represents verbs as semantic structures with a limited number of semantic predicates.  ...  If the leftmost argument of LCSS has the same value as either z or y in LCSN1, the model makes the argument a subject (nominative).  ...

On the tightrope between infinitives and action nouns [chapter]

Enrique L. Palancar
2016 Typological Studies in Language  
In this paper, I study the distribution of two nominalization structures in two closely related Amerindian languages of Mexico (Eastern Otomi and Northern Otomi).  ...  I show how a cognate structure in two close languages can be found in the two opposing ends of a nominalization scale: in Eastern Otomi, the structure is inflectional and should be analyzed as an intransitive  ...  I wrote the final version of the paper in Graz, Austria, during a short stay at the Linguistics Department of the Karl-Franz University from May 14 to 25, 2012.  ...

From participle to adjective in Germanic and Romance [chapter]

Petra Sleeman
2014 Linguistics Today  
In this paper it is argued, based on the combination of the adverbs of degree très "very" and beaucoup "much" with passive/past participles in French, that participles can also have the four interpretations  ...  in Romance.  ...  Spanish nominal infinitives have structure (9b): they cannot pluralize. English and Romanian nominal non-derived nominalizations have structure (9c): they can pluralize.  ...

What's in an agent?

Richard Huyghe, Marine Wauquier
2020 Morphology  
It appears that agent meaning in the nominal domain is not necessarily imported from the verbal domain, but can develop directly in the semantic structure of nouns.  ...  The investigation is based on the distributional study of monosemous deverbal ANs ending in -eur, and on the examination of word similarities in the French Wikipedia corpus.  ...  The open access funding was provided by the University of Fribourg.  ...

The dual nature of Deverbal Nominal Constructions: Evidence from acceptability ratings and corpus analysis

Marco Baroni, Emiliano Guevara, Roberto Zamparelli
2009 Corpus Linguistics and Linguistic Theory  
The Deverbal Nominal Construction of modern Italian belongs to a class of phenomena that present interesting theoretical challenges given their ambiguous status between morphological compounding and syntax  ...  The head in a DNC is an event noun (or process nominal) derived from a transitive or unaccusative-intransitive verb.  ...  The research described here has been partially funded by the CompoNet PRIN project of the Italian Ministry of University and Research.  ...

Bridging Corpus for Russian in comparison with Czech

Anna Roitberg, Anna Nedoluzhko
2016 Proceedings of the Workshop on Coreference Resolution Beyond OntoNotes (CORBON 2016)  
In this paper, we present a syntactic approach to the annotation of bridging relations, socalled genitive bridging.  ...  We discuss some special aspects of bridging resolution for Russian and specifics of bridging annotation for languages where definite nominal groups are not as frequent as e.g. in Romance and Germanic languages  ...  Acknowledgments The study was supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic research (grant No. 15-07-09306), the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic (grant 16-05394S) and Ministry of Education, Youth and  ...

Sentence Meaning Representations across Languages: What Can We Learn from Existing Frameworks?

Zdeněk Žabokrtský, Magda Ševčíková, Daniel Zeman
2020 Computational Linguistics  
This article gives an overview of how sentence meaning is represented in eleven deep-syntactic frameworks, ranging from those based on linguistic theories elaborated for decades to rather lightweight NLP-motivated  ...  We outline most important characteristics of each framework and then discuss how particular language phenomena are treated across those frameworks, while trying to shed light on commonalities as well as  ...  We dedicate this study to the memory of Petr Sgall, the founder of computational linguistics in former Czechoslovakia and one of the founding members of our Institute.  ...

Constituents in multiword expressions: What is their role, and why do we care? [chapter]

The collection is based on a workshop at the 2017 annual conference of the German Linguistic Society (DGfS) that took place at Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany  ...  The processing and representation of multiword expressions (MWEs), ranging from noun compounds (such as nickname in English and Ohrwurm in German) to complex verbs (such as give up in English and aufgeben  ...  These deverbal nouns are ambiguous between compositionally interpreted "argument structure nominals", which inherit verbal structure and realise arguments (e.g., assessment of the budget by the government  ...

Universal Dependencies

Marie-Catherine de Marneffe, Christopher D. Manning, Joakim Nivre, Daniel Zeman
2021 Computational Linguistics  
Grammatical relations between words are centrally used to explain how predicate–argument structures are encoded morphosyntactically in different languages while morphological features and part-of-speech  ...  In this article, we outline the linguistic theory of the UD framework, which draws on a long tradition of typologically oriented grammatical theories.  ...  We are grateful to Google for sponsoring the UD project in a number of ways, and to the Computational Linguistics reviewers for helpful suggestions.  ...

Italian V+N compounds, inflectional features and conceptual structure

Klaus von Heusinger, Christoph Schwarze
2013 Morphology  
Thus the morphological building of these compounds has to interact not only with lexical semantics but also with the independent tier of conceptual structure in a systematic way.  ...  We argue that the assignment of these features is conditioned by conceptual structure.  ...  The observation is that the Italian VNCs have a nominal constituent that fills the Theme argument of the verb in the same way as the N fills the argument slot of the V in the Germanic N+V+er pattern.  ...
