Generalizing over Lexical Features: Selectional Preferences for Semantic Role Classification
This paper explores methods to alleviate the effect of lexical sparseness in the classification of verbal arguments. We show how automatically generated selectional preferences ar...

Improving Semantic Role Classification with Selectional Preferences
This work incorporates Selectional Preferences (SP) into a Semantic Role (SR) Classification system. We learn separate selectional preferences for noun phrases and prepositional p...

Automatic Selectional Preference Acquisition for Latin Verbs
We present a system that automatically induces Selectional Preferences (SPs) for Latin verbs from two treebanks by using Latin WordNet. Our method overcomes some of the problems c...

Improving the Use of Pseudo-Words for Evaluating Selectional Preferences
This paper improves the use of pseudowords as an evaluation framework for selectional preferences. While pseudowords originally evaluated word sense disambiguation, they are now c...

A Latent Dirichlet Allocation Method for Selectional Preferences
The computation of selectional preferences, the admissible argument values for a relation, is a well-known NLP task with broad applicability. We present LDA-SP, which utilizes Lin...

Statistical models for the induction and use of selectional preferences
Selectional preferences have a long history in both generative and computational linguistics. However, since the publication of Resnik's dissertation in 1993, a new approach ...

Using Semantic Preferences to Identify Verbal Participation in Role Switching Alternations
We propose a method for identifying diathesis alternations where a particular argument type is seen in slots which have different grammatical roles in the alternating forms. The m...

Evaluating and Combining Approaches to Selectional Preference Acquisition
Previous work on the induction of selectional preferences has been mainly carried out for English and has concentrated almost exclusively on verbs and their direct objects. In thi...

Flexible, Corpus-Based Modelling of Human Plausibility Judgements
In this paper, we consider the computational modelling of human plausibility judgements for verb-relation-argument triples, a task equivalent to the computation of selectional pre...

Comparing Computational Models of Selectional Preferences - Second-order Co-Occurrence vs. Latent Semantic Clusters
This paper presents a comparison of three computational approaches to selectional preferences: (i) an intuitive distributional approach that uses second-order co-occurrence of pre...
