2015 Proceedings of the 53rd Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics and the 7th International Joint Conference on Natural Language Processing (Volume 1: Long Papers)  
We use our method to generate Proposition Banks with high to reasonable quality for 7 languages in three language families and release these resources to the research community.  ...  Semantic role labeling (SRL) is crucial to natural language understanding as it identifies the predicate-argument structure in text with semantic labels.  ...  Multilingual Experiments We use our method to generate Proposition Banks for 7 languages and evaluate the generated resources.  ...

Cross-Lingual Semantic Role Labeling with High-Quality Translated Training Corpus [article]

Hao Fei and Meishan Zhang and Donghong Ji
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Many efforts of research are devoted to semantic role labeling (SRL) which is crucial for natural language understanding.  ...  In this paper, we propose a novel alternative based on corpus translation, constructing high-quality training datasets for the target languages from the source gold-standard SRL annotations.  ...  Introduction Semantic role labeling (SRL), which aims to capture the high-level meaning of a sentence, such as who did what to whom, is an underlying task for facilitating a broad range of natural language  ...

X-SRL: A Parallel Cross-Lingual Semantic Role Labeling Dataset [article]

Angel Daza, Anette Frank
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We apply high-quality machine translation to the English CoNLL-09 dataset and use multilingual BERT to project its high-quality annotations to the target languages.  ...  In fact, existing multilingual SRL datasets contain disparate annotation styles or come from different domains, hampering generalization in multilingual learning.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank our reviewers for their insightful comments.  ...

Cross-lingual Semantic Role Labeling with Model Transfer [article]

Hao Fei and Meishan Zhang and Fei Li and Donghong Ji
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Prior studies show that cross-lingual semantic role labeling (SRL) can be achieved by model transfer under the help of universal features.  ...  We study both the bilingual transfer and multi-source transfer, under gold or machine-generated syntactic inputs, pre-trained high-order abstract features, and contextualized multilingual word representations  ...  Semantic Role Labeling A line of research efforts has been made for semantic role labeling.  ...

Transferring Semantic Roles Using Translation and Syntactic Information [article]

Maryam Aminian, Mohammad Sadegh Rasooli, Mona Diab
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Our paper addresses the problem of annotation projection for semantic role labeling for resource-poor languages using supervised annotations from a resource-rich language through parallel data.  ...  Our experiments yield a 3.5 absolute labeled F-score improvement over a standard annotation projection method.  ...  Acknowledgments This work has been partly funded by DARPA LORELEI Grant and generous support by Leidos Corp. for the 1st and 3rd authors.  ...

Ben Eyal, Michael Elhadad
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We present a semantic role labeling resource for Hebrew built semi-automatically through annotation projection from English.  ...  We provide a fully annotated version of the data including morphological analysis, dependency syntax and semantic role labeling in both FrameNet and PropBank styles.  ...  Generating high quality proposition Banks for multilingual semantic role tics, NODALIDA 2011 , May 11-13, 2011 , Riga, Latvia, pages 34-41.

Improving Chinese Semantic Role Labeling using High-quality Surface and Deep Case Frames

Gongye Jin, Daisuke Kawahara, Sadao Kurohashi
2017 Proceedings of the 15th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Volume 1, Long Papers  
This paper presents a method for improving semantic role labeling (SRL) using a large amount of automatically acquired knowledge.  ...  To compensate the deficiency of the surface case frames, we compile deep case frames from automatic semantic roles.  ...  The experimental results showed a promising result for high-quality semantic role selection.  ...

Ontologies: a revamped cross-disciplinary buzzword or a truly promising interdisciplinary research topic?

Peter Spyns, Jan De Bo

Thirty Musts for Meaning Banking [article]

Johan Bos, Lasha Abzianidze
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Meaning banking--creating a semantically annotated corpus for the purpose of semantic parsing or generation--is a challenging task.  ...  This paper lists some lessons learned in nearly ten years of meaning annotation during the development of the Groningen Meaning Bank (Bos et al., 2017) and the Parallel Meaning Bank (Abzianidze et al.,  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank the two anonymous reviewers for their comments-they helped to improve this paper considerably.  ...

2012 Journal of Web Semantics  
The first is that of using domains, i.e. a general semantic-aware methodology and technique for structuring the background knowledge.  ...  Despite the progress made, one of the main barriers towards the use of semantics is the lack of background knowledge.  ...  For all the labels in the -Mapping the semantic matching problem in the general three steps. two classifications compute the concept at label 2.  ...

Multilingual Joint Parsing of Syntactic and Semantic Dependencies with a Latent Variable Model

James Henderson, Paola Merlo, Ivan Titov, Gabriele Musillo
2013 Computational Linguistics  
In this article, we report on a joint generative history-based model to predict the most likely derivation of a dependency parser for both syntactic and semantic dependencies, in multiple languages.  ...  We also propose novel derivations for semantic dependency structures, which are appropriate for the relatively unconstrained nature of these graphs.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would particularly like to thank Andrea Gesmundo for his help with the CoNLL-2009 shared task.  ...
