Abstract: "One of the lexicographer's tasks is to determine what the lexical entry of a verb should include and how best to present this information. Although complex interdependencies between the meaning of a verb and its complement-taking properties form an essential part of knowledge of a verb, they are perhaps one of the more difficult things for the lexicographer to convey. In this paper we examine how the various components of lexical entries, particularly example sentences, are used to present information about several types of meaning/form interactions in two learner's dictionaries. We conclude that current dictionary formats have certain inherent limitations, but suggest ways in which even these formats can be made more effective."

This paper presents the lexical component of the START Question Answering system developed at the MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab. START is able to interpret correctly a wide range of semantic relationships associated with alternate expressions of the arguments of verbs. The design of the system takes advantage of the results of recent linguistic research into the structure of the lexicon, allowing START to attain a broader range of coverage than many existing systems. It is concluded that the addition of a component that explicitly encodes verb classes and their characteristic properties, enables the START system to handle a wide range of phenomena reflecting semantic-syntactic correspondences that are characteristic of English verbs. By factoring properties that belong to whole classes of verbs out of the entries of individual verbs and letting these entries simply designate the verb's class membership, we do more than merely simplify entries. We facilitate the addition of new words to the lexicon and make it easier to extend the system's coverage of linguistic phenomena. Keywords: Diathesis alternations; Verb classes. (edc)
