Comparing dependency and constituent syntax for frame-semantic analysis

Johansson, Richard LU and Nugues, Pierre LU (2008) Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation (LREC) In Proceedings of LREC 2008: The sixth international conference on Language Resources and Evaluation
Abstract
We address the question of which syntactic representation is best suited for role-semantic analysis of English in the FrameNet paradigm.

We compare systems based on dependencies and constituents, and a dependency syntax with a rich set of grammatical functions with one

with a smaller set. Our experiments show that dependency-based and constituent-based analyzers give roughly equivalent performance,

and that a richer set of functions has a positive influence on argument classification for verbs.
