We present a model for inducing sen- tential argument structure, which distin- guishes arguments from optional modi- fiers. We use this model to study whether representing an argument/modifier distinc- tion helps in learning argument structure, and whether a linguistically-natural argu- ment/modifier distinction can be induced from distributional data alone. Our results provide evidence for both hypotheses.
