Brutus: A Semantic Role Labeling System Incorporating CCG, CFG, and Dependency Features
We describe a semantic role labeling system that makes primary use of CCG-based features. Most previously developed systems are CFG-based and make extensive use of a treepath feature, which suffers from data sparsity due to its use of explicit tree configurations. CCG affords ways to augment treepathbased features to overcome these data sparsity issues. By adding features over CCG wordword dependencies and lexicalized verbal subcategorization frames ("supertags"), we can obtain an F-score that is substantially better than a previous CCG-based SRL system and competitive with the current state of the art. A manual error analysis reveals that parser errors account for many of the errors of our system. This analysis also suggests that simultaneous incremental parsing and semantic role labeling may lead to performance gains in both tasks.
