Cross-Language Frame Semantics Transfer in Bilingual Corpora
Recent work on the transfer of semantic information across languages has been recently applied to the development of resources annotated with Frame information for different non-English European languages. These works are based on the assumption that parallel corpora annotated for English can be used to transfer the semantic information to the other target languages. In this paper, a robust method based on a statistical machine translation step augmented with simple rule-based post-processing is presented. It alleviates problems related to preprocessing errors and the complex optimization required by syntax-dependent models of the cross-lingual mapping. Different alignment strategies are here investigated against the Europarl corpus. Results suggest that the quality of the derived annotations is surprisingly good and well suited for training semantic role labeling systems. 1 Motivation The availability of large scale semantic lexicons, such as Framenet ([1]), has allowed the adoption o...
