Integration of light-weight semantics into a syntax query formalism


Marek, T (2009). Integration of light-weight semantics into a syntax query formalism. In: Biennial GSCL Conference , Potsdam, 30 September 2009 - 2 October 2009, 109-114.

Abstract

In the Computational Linguistics community, much work is put into the creation of large, high-quality linguistic resources, often with complex annotation. In order to make these resources accessible to non-technical audiences, formalisms for searching and filtering are needed, like the TIGER corpus query language. Recently, augmented treebanks have been published, including the SALSA corpus which features frame semantic annotation on top of syntactic structure.
We design an extension for the TIGER language which allows searching for frame structures along with syntactic annotation. To achieve this, the TIGER ob ject model is expanded to include frame semantics, while remaining fully backwards-compatible and add these extensions to our own implementation of TIGER.
