Criteria for the manual grouping of verb senses

Cecily Jill Duffield, Jena D. Hwang, Susan Windisch Brown, Dmitriy Dligach, Sarah E. Vieweg, Jenny Davis, Martha Palmer
2007 Proceedings of the Linguistic Annotation Workshop on - LAW '07   unpublished
Determining appropriate criteria for clustering is based primarily on the needs of annotators.  ...  Clustering of verb senses involves examining syntactic and semantic features of verbs and arguments on a caseby-case basis rather than applying a strict methodology.  ...  Sets of senses under specific nodes of the tree are grouped together into single entries, along with the syntactic and semantic criteria for their groupings, to be presented to the annotators.  ...

Making fine-grained and coarse-grained sense distinctions, both manually and automatically

MARTHA PALMER, HOA TRANG DANG, CHRISTIANE FELLBAUM
2005 Natural Language Engineering  
In this paper we discuss a persistent problem arising from polysemy: namely the difficulty of finding consistent criteria for making fine-grained sense distinctions, either manually or automatically.  ...  We investigate sources of human annotator disagreements stemming from the tagging for the English Verb Lexical Sample Task in the Senseval-2 exercise in automatic Word Sense Disambiguation.  ...  We would also like to thank Scott Cotton for system infrastructure support, Joseph Rosenzweig for building the annotation tool, and Lauren Delfs and Susanne Wolff for the manual annotation for Senseval  ...

Exploiting Rules for Word Sense Disambiguation in Machine Translation

Lucia Specia, Maria das Graças Volpe Nunes, Mark Stevenson
2005 Revista de Procesamiento de Lenguaje Natural (SEPLN)  
We also analyzed the rules manually, assessing subjective criteria revealing the level of interest of the rules, namely, the usefulness and unexpectedness of those rules.  ...  Each sentence has a sense tag, which corresponds to the translation of the verb in that sentence.  ...

2001 Proceedings of the 39th Annual Meeting on Association for Computational Linguistics - ACL '01  
This paper describes automatic techniques for mapping 9611 entries in a database of English verbs to Word-Net senses. The verbs were initially grouped into 491 classes based on syntactic features.  ...  semantic similarity of WordNet senses for verbs within the same class; (4) probabilistic correlations between WordNet data and attributes of the verb classes.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors are supported, in part, by PFF/PECASE Award IRI-9629108, DOD Contract MDA904-96-C-1250, DARPA/ITO Contracts N66001-97-C-8540 and N66001-00-28910, and a National Science Foundation  ...

English Tasks: All-Words and Verb Lexical Sample

Martha Palmer, Christiane Fellbaum, Scott Cotton, Lauren Delfs, Hoa Trang Dang
2001 International Workshop on Semantic Evaluation  
The manual annotation for both the English all-words and verb lexical sample tasks was done by researchers and students in linguistics and computational linguistics at the University of Pennsylvania.  ...  Most of the revisions of sense definitions relevant to the English tasks were done prior to the bulk of the tagging.  ...  We would also like to thank Joseph Rosenzweig for building the annotation tools, and Susanne Wolff for contribution to the manual annotation.  ...

Valency Frames of Polysemous and Homonymous Verbs in VerbaLex

Vít Baisa
2010 Recent Advances in Slavonic Natural Languages Processing  
This, and the fact that a context of a word is crucial for determining sense of the word, makes VerbaLex suitable for disambiguation of polysemous and homonymous verbs.  ...  For each Czech verb with its sense, VerbaLex contains appropriate valency frames (patterns with morphological and syntactical information) in which the verb can appear.  ...  Acknowledgements This work has been partly supported by the Ministry of Education of CR within the Center of basic research LC536.  ...

Jinying Chen, Martha Palmer
2004 Proceedings of the 42nd Annual Meeting on Association for Computational Linguistics - ACL '04  
The experimental results show that the EM clustering model can learn sense or sense group distinctions for most of the verbs successfully.  ...  This paper discusses the application of the Expectation-Maximization (EM) clustering algorithm to the task of Chinese verb sense discrimination.  ...  Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.  ...

Annotating WordNet

Helen Langone, Benjamin R. Haskell, George A. Miller
2004 North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics  
The problem of ambiguity persists even in limited domains, thus the necessity for wide-coverage inventories of senses (dictionaries) and corpora sense-tagged to them.  ...  In this paper, we present a report on the state of our current endeavor to increase the connectivity of WordNet through sense-tagging the glosses, the result of which will be to create a more integrated  ...  Many thanks also to Jin Oh for building the initial version of the manual tagger tool.  ...
