IndIA: Inducing Implicit Arguments

From this page you can download various resources described in the following publications:

  • Roth, M. and Frank, A. (2013):
    Automatically identifying implicit arguments to improve argument linking and coherence modeling. Proceedings of the Second Joint Conference on Lexical and Computational Semantics (*SEM), Atlanta, Georgia, USA, June, pp. 306-316, Association for Computational Linguistics. [ .pdf ]
  • Roth, M. and Frank, A. (2012):
    Aligning predicates across monolingual comparable texts using graph-based clustering. Proceedings of the 2012 Joint Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing and Computational Natural Language Learning (EMNLP), Jeju Island, Republic of Korea, July, pp. 171-182. [ .pdf ]
  • Roth, M. and Frank, A. (2012):
    Aligning predicate argument structures in monolingual comparable texts: A new corpus for a new task. Proceedings of the First Joint Conference on Lexical and Computational Semantics (*SEM), Montréal, Canada, June, pp. 218-227. [ .pdf ]


The download area contains four resources:

  • Document IDs of comparable texts extracted from the Gigaword corpus
  • Gold standard alignments between predicate argument structures across texts
  • Automatically computed high precision alignments for the full pairwise corpus
  • Induced instances of implicit arguments and their discourse antecedents


The actual resources can be found in the download section
