10 Semantic Role Labeling

Semantic role labeling (SRL), also known as semantic annotation, is the process of attributing semantic roles, such as agent, patient, or location, to the semantic arguments defined by a predicate or verb within a sentence. For Slovene, the system of semantic-role annotation, along with its semantic categories (or tags), draws upon the Prague Dependency Treebank system (PDT 2.0). This system, as applied in the Valency Lexicon of Czech Verbs (Vallex), has been tailored to the syntactic and semantic characteristics of Slovene.
