Semi-Compositional Noun + Verb Constructions

Veronika Vincze

Semi-compositional constructions are common noun + verb combinations where the noun functions as the semantic head of the construction, but the syntactic head is the verb. Their structure is similar to productive or idiomatic noun + verb combinations, they nevertheless behave differently from those two classes with respect to their syntax and semantics. These features make it difficult to offer a linguistically apt analysis that is able to give an account of their special features and natural language processing (NLP) applications also encounter problems when dealing with them. The objective of this book is to provide analyses of semi-compositional constructions at several levels of grammar (i.e. syntax, semantics and lexicology) that can be fruitfully exploited in their NLP treatment (automatic identification, word sense disambiguation, information extraction and retrieval and machine translation). In this way, it is demonstrated how theoretical linguistic results can be applied in an empirical field of study (i.e. in natural language processing). This book is equally recommended for linguists and computer scientists working in the field of natural language processing.

Predicting the Compositionality of Multiword Expressions ... B ANNARD (Bannard, 2006): 160 English verb particle constructions (VPCs) were annotated for compositionality relative to each of the two compo-nent words (the verb and the particle). Each annota-tor was asked to annotate each of the verb and parti-cle as yes ,no or don't know . Based on the ma-jority annotation, among the 160 VPCs, 122 (76%)

whereas LVCs are semi-compositional since their meaning can be mainly predicted from the noun con-stituent. ABS and LIT combinations are expected to be largely compositional. None of the above-mentioned properties are suf-cient criteria by themselves for determining which semantic class a given verb+noun combination be-longs to. Moreover

Semi-compositional verb–noun constructions have been investigated under various labels in the different linguistic traditions. In this article we start from the quite well defined notion of support verb construction to present a battery of linguistic tests to distinguish truly semi-compositional constructions from semantically compositional verb–noun combinations on the one hand and from
