TitleNOMLEX: a lexicon of nominalizations
AbstractNOMLEX (NOMinalization LEXicon) is a dictionary of English nominalizations currently under development at New York University. NOMLEX seeks not only to describe the allowed complements for a nominalization, but also to relate the nominal complements to the arguments of the corresponding verb. We consider both the main verbal arguments (subject, direct object, and indirect object), which may map into a variety of nominal positions, and the oblique verbal complements, which map more directly into nominal complements. The argument correspondences are specified through a combination of explicit information in the lexical entries and general linguistic constraints on the correspondences.
