Saarbrücken Lexical Semantics Acquisition Project

Saarbrücken Lexical Semantics Acquisition Project

  • Duration:

The aim of SALSA II is to

  • provide a large, frame-based lexicon for German, with rich semantic and syntactic properties, as a resource for linguistic and computational linguistic research,
  • investigate probabilistic and hybrid methods for wide-coverage semantic annotation, and
  • explore the use of frame semantic annotations for dynamic semantic analysis in practical NLP applications, especially information access.

SALSA II is funded by the German Science Foundation DFG and builds on its predecessor project SALSA, in particular the German SALSA/TIGER corpus with manually annotated FrameNet frame structures.
