In this paper, we propose an Inductive Logic Programming learning method which aims at automatically extracting special Noun-Verb (N- V) pairs from a corpus in order to build up semantic lexicons based on Pustejovsky's Gen- erative Lexicon (GL) principles (Pustejovsky, 1995). In one of the components of this lex- ical model, called the qualia structure, words are described in terms of semantic roles. For example, the relic role indicates the purpose or function of an item (cut for knife), the agen- tive role its creation mode (build for house), etc. The qualia structure of a noun is mainly made up of verbal associations, encoding rela- tional information. The Inductive Logic Pro- gramming learning method that we have devel- oped enables us to automatically extract from a corpus N-V pairs w...
