This paper describes a series of French se- mantic role labelling experiments which show that a small set of manually anno- tated training data is superior to a much larger set containing semantic role labels which have been projected from a source language via word alignment. Using uni- versal part-of-speech tags and dependen- cies makes little difference over the orig- inal fine-grained tagset and dependency scheme. Moreover, there seems to be no improvement gained from projecting se- mantic roles between direct translations than between indirect translations.
