DMR workshop at ACL 2019.


Research on adpositions and possessives in multiple languages has led to a small inven- tory of general-purpose meaning classes that disambiguate tokens. Importantly, that work has argued for a principled separation of the se- mantic role in a scene from the function coded by morphosyntax. Here, we ask whether this approach can be generalized beyond ad- positions and possessives to cover all scene participants—including subjects and objects— directly, without reference to a frame lexicon. We present new guidelines for English and the results of an interannotator agreement study.
