Abstract

When complete, NomBank will provide annotation of noun arguments in Penn Treebank II (PTB). In PropBank, University of Pennsylvania annotators provide similar information for verbs. Given nominalization/verb mappings, the combination of NomBank and PropBank allows for generalization of arguments across parts of speech. This paper describes our annotation task including factors which make assigning role labels to noun arguments a challenging task.
