TitleMultilingual Generation of Noun Valency Patterns for Extracting Syntactic-Semantical Knowledge from Corpora (MultiGenera)
AbstractThe aim of the project is to develop a prototype for a generator of argument structure or valency realizations in terms of syntagmatic and paradigmatic combinations of Spanish, German and French nouns. The two main applications of the tool prototype we are aiming to develop, are (1) the generation of noun phrases as argument structure realizations that follow patterns related to semantic features, for the creation of corpus and web query strings; and (2) the knowledge-based generation of simple and complex noun phrases that are acceptable in a coherent sentence context. An essential step in developing these applications is the systematic description of the valency-related syntagmatic and paradigmatic properties of argument combinations. To this end, we have devised a methodology based on bidirectional mutual enrichment (bottom-down and bottom-up). With the aim of generating argument surface realizations, we will mainly use lexical knowledge represented in wordnets for Spanish, German and French for the semantic annotation of lexical prototypes and their subsequent paradigmatic expansion.
