Syntactic Representations Considered for Frame-Semantic Analysis

Johansson, Richard LU and Nugues, Pierre LU (2007) The Sixth International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories In Proceedings of the Sixth International Workshop on Treebanks and Linguistic Theories 1. p.61-72
Abstract
We address the question of which syntactic representation is best suited for FrameNet-based semantic analysis of English text. We compare analyzers based on dependencies and constituents, and a dependency syntax with a rich set of grammatical functions with one with a smaller set. Our study demonstrates 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.
