Norwegian Valency Corpus

Revision as of 18:58, 16 July 2017 by Typecraft (Talk | contribs) (Version 1)

Version 1

Version 1 of the corpus consists of 22000 sentences imported from the Leipzig Corpus Collection, all with the standard TypeCraft IGT annotation and with valency information for each verb occurrence, given in the form exemplified for ditransitive

FCT: ditransitive
SIT: ternaryRel
ConstructionLabel: v-ditr 

where 'SAS' stands for 'syntactic argument structure', 'FCT' stands for 'functional characterization', 'SIT' for situation structure, and 'ConstructionLabel' for a code described at [[]]. The valency information is stated relative to the ACTIVE form of the verb, even if the example provided is in passive. When doing search you can use either of these types of labels. The array of options within each type is explained and exemplified as follows:

SAS at Valency label 'SAS'
FCT at Valency label 'FCT'
SIT at [[]] 
ConstructionLabel at Valence Profile Norwegian (for illustrations using English, see Valence Profile English).

You can search relative to valency type in general, or specifically for a given verb, where the verb can be stated by citation form or by its actually occurring form. The search interface is the standard one for TypeCraft:

TypeCraft Tools (in upper left corner) -> TypeCraft Search -> Phrase search.

On this page choose 'Norwegian Bokmål' from the Language menu; at 'Phrase level', write (or glue) the valency label into the slot 'Phrase description'. If you want to search also relative to verb, enter the exact form of the verb under 'Word level - Exact form'. (The slot for its citation form is 'Morpheme level - Exact base form', however this search option is temporarily disabled.)
