Conference Paper

The present paper describes the construction of a resource to determine the lexical preference class of a large number of English nouns (≈ 14,000) with respect to the distinction between mass and count interpretations. In constructing the lexicon, we have employed a questionnaire-based approach based on existing resources such as the Open ANC (http...

Das vorliegende Handbuch dient der Bestimmung einzelner Bedeutungen aus dem Bedeutungsinventar von 22 einfachen Präpositionen des Deutschen. Es kann einerseits dazu dienen, die Bedeutung einer Präposition in einzelnen Belegen zu bestimmen, andererseits bildet es aber auch die Basis für die breite Annotation von Präpositionsbedeutungen für Zwecke de...

While there is general agreement that prepositions (especially simple prep-ositions) are highly polysemous, there are two competing views on how polysemy might occur: the derivational view assumes that simple prepositions derive from and retain the basic meanings of adverbs, such as temporal, spatial or modal relations. In line with this, it has be...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper, we present an add-on called EXCOTATE for the annotation tool MMAX2. The add-on interacts with annotated data stored in and spread over different MMAX2 projects. The data can be inspected, revised, and analyzed in a tabular format, and will be reintegrated into MMAX2 projects afterwards. It is based on Microsoft Excel with extensive u...
Chapter

Traditional approaches to prepositions classify preposition lexemes into different semantic classes like spatial, temporal or modal ones. In this paper we reconsider the so-called spatial prepositions and their subclassification. We propose a sense based classification of prepositions using traditional criteria to determine different classes of spa...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The realization of singular count nouns without an accompanying determiner in- side a PP (determinerless PP, bare PP, Preposition-Noun Combination) has re- cently attracted some interest in compu- tational linguistics. Yet, the relevant fac- tors for determiner omission remain un- clear, and conditions for determiner omission vary from language to...

We present an annotation scheme for preposition senses in preposition-nouncombinations (PNCs) and PPs in German.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Prepositions are highly polysemous. Yet, little effort has been spent to develop language-specific annotation schemata for preposition senses to systematically represent and analyze the polysemy of prepositions in large corpora. In this paper, we present an annotation schema for preposition senses in German. The annotation schema includes a hierarc...

Preposition-noun constructions (PNCs) are problematic in that they allow the rea-lization of singular count nouns without an accompanying determiner. While the construction is empirically productive, it defies intuitive judgments. In this paper, we describe the extraction of PNCs from large annotated corpora as a preliminary step for identifying th...
