Lexical Conceptual Structure Verb Database

Primary resource type: Lexicons:Verb; Other resource tags: None; Resource language: English; Availability: Public; Sponsor: Computational Linguistics and Information Processing Laboratory, University of Maryland

The "LCS Database" contains Lexical conceptual Structures built by hand by Dorr in 1994, organized into semantic classes that are a reformulated version of those in Beth Levin (1993) English Verb Classes and Alternations (EVCA), Part 2. The LCS Database was hand-tagged with WordNet on a per-class basis, using the 1.6 version of WordNet (Fellbaum, 1998). The resulting database was further extended to include 26 new classes (Dorr, 1996, 1997), and adding 3000 WordNet-tagged verbs. Additional contributions to this database were made in collaboration with Douglas Jones (Dorr and Jones, 1999) and the classes were further refined by Mari Olsen (Olsen et al. 1997) so that they contain semantic representation that indicate verbal telicity patterns. Levin's original database contained 3024 verbs in 192 classes numbering between 9.1 and 57---a total of 4186 verb entries. The augmented database contains 4432 verbs in 492 classes with more specific numbering (e.g., ``51.3.2.a.ii'') and additional class numbers for new classes (between 000 and 026)---a total of 11000 verb entries.
