Jena D. Hwang, Archna Bhatia, Na-Rae Han, Tim O'Gorman, Vivek Srikumar, Nathan Schneider
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We consider the semantics of prepositions, revisiting a broad-coverage annotation scheme used for annotating all 4,250 preposition tokens in a 55,000 word corpus of English.  ...  Our proposal is to embrace the potential for construal in adposition use, expressing such phenomena directly at the token level to manage complexity and avoid sense proliferation.  ...  Acknowledgments We thank the rest of our CARMLS team-Martha Palmer, Ken Litkowski, Katie Conger, and Meredith Green-for participating in weekly discussions of adposition semantics; Michael Ellsworth for  ...

2010 Artificial Intelligence  
We cover language concerned with space, actions in space and spatial relationships and develop an ontological organization that relates such expressions to general classes of fixed semantic import.  ...  Treaitng the semantics of natural language expressions concerning space in this way offers a substantial simplification of the general problem of relating natural spatial language to its contextualized  ...  Broad corpus-driven evaluation of linguistic coverage For the reasons explained above, we must consider the breadth of GUM's coverage of linguistic data and not only its detail.  ...
