This paper presents an approach to au- tomatic acquisition of the argument- predicate relations from a semantically annotated corpus. We use SALSA, a German newspaper corpus manually an- notated with role-semantic information based on frame semantics. Since the rel- atively small size of SALSA does not al- low to estimate the semantic relatedness in the extracted argument-predicate pairs, we use a larger corpus for ranking. Two experiments have been performed in or- der to evaluate the proposed approach. In the first experiment we compare au- tomatically extracted argument-predicate relations with the gold standard formed from associations provided by human sub- jects. In the second experiment we cal- culate correlation between automatic relat- edness measure and human ranking of the extra...
