Carving verb classes from corpora
In this paper, I discuss some methodological problems arising from the use of corpus data for semantic verb classification. In particular, I present a computational framework to describe the distributional properties of Italian verbs using linguistic data automatically extracted from a large corpus. This information is used to build a distribution-based classification of a set of Italian verbs. It is small scale notwithstanding, this case study will provide evidence for the complex interplay between syntactic and semantic verb features.
