Incorporating Coercive Constructions into a Verb Lexicon

Claire Bonial, Susan Windisch Brown, Jena D. Hwang, Christopher Parisien, Martha Palmer, Suzanne Stevenson
2011 Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
We use unsupervised methods to estimate probabilistic measures from corpus data for predicting usage of the construction across verb classes in the lexicon and evaluate against VerbNet.  ...  We focus on CAUSED-MOTION as an example construction occurring with verbs for which it is a typical usage or for which it must be interpreted as extending the event semantics through coercion, which occurs  ...  We then test our measures over corpus data, manually annotated for use of the CM construction.  ...

2018 Frontiers in Psychology  
In addition, we identified some novel uses of the verbs GO and GIVE: (i) GO functioning as a future tense marker and (ii) GIVE functioning as a light verb.  ...  In serial verb constructions (SVCs), multiple independent lexical verbs are combined in a mono-clausal construction.  ...  AUTHOR CONTRIBUTIONS SC extracted the data from the corpus and annotated them.  ...

Recent change in the productivity and schematicity of the way-construction: A distributional semantic analysis

Florent Perek
2018 Corpus Linguistics and Linguistic Theory  
This paper presents a corpus-based study of recent change in the English way-construction, drawing on data from the 1830s to the 2000s.  ...  These findings are interpreted in terms of increases in schematicity, either of the verb slot or the motion component contributed by the construction.  ...  For this reason, the corpus is well suited to the study of many syntactic constructions, and the way-construction in particular.  ...

A roadmap towards determining the universal status of semantic frames [chapter]

The Berkeley FrameNet project, founded in 1997, organizes the lexicon of English by semantic frames (Fillmore 1982) , with valence information derived from attested, manually annotated corpus examples.  ...  This paper proposes a systematic method for identifying semantic frames that could be labeled "universal" (based only on data from languages under investigation).  ...  frame=Cotheme]. 10 Fillmore and Atkins (2000: 103) provide a much more detailed corpus study of to crawl, employing corpus data to show that the different senses of motion verbs can be represented in terms  ...

Yang Gu, Gondy Leroy, Sydney Pettygrove, Maureen Kelly Galindo, Margaret Kurzius-Spencer
2018 AMIA Annual Symposium Proceedings  
We evaluate the importance of corpus specificity versus size and hypothesize that for specific domains small corpora can generate excellent word embeddings.  ...  Due to diversity in its vocabulary, the abstract-based embeddings generated fewer related terms and saw minimal improvement when the size of the corpus increased.  ...  Acknowledgement The data presented in this paper were collected by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network supported by CDC  ...
