Compositional syntax-based phrase-level polarity annotation for German


Klenner, M; Clematide, S; Petrakis, S; Luder, M (2012). Compositional syntax-based phrase-level polarity annotation for German. In: The 10th International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories (TLT 2012), Heidelberg, 6 January 2012 - 7 January 2012, online.

Abstract

We introduce the task of word and phrase-level polarity annotation for German as part of an attempt to develop a compositional theory of clause-level polarity determination. Thus, annotations should give access to the nested building blocks, the structural strata of polarity composition. Therefore and in contrast to existing polarity-tagged corpora, we annotate not exclusively on the basis of surface strings, but argue that proper polarity annotation of complex phrases requires access to their syntactic structures. We discuss the principles of our treebank design, and present the inter-annotator agreement of our kick-off annotations on a test suite of 270 sentences that was compiled specifically to contain interesting polarity combinations.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
