Venue Annual Meeting of The European Chapter of The Association of Computational Linguistics

Data-driven approaches in computational semantics are not common because there are only few semantically annotated re- sources available. We are building a large corpus of public-domain English texts and annotate them semi-automatically with syntactic structures (derivations in Com- binatory Categorial Grammar) and seman- tic representations (Discourse Representa- tion Structures), including events, thematic roles, named entities, anaphora, scope, and rhetorical structure.
