A computational construction grammar approach to semantic frame extraction

We are happy to announce that our latest FCG paper “A Computational Construction Grammar Approach to Semantic Frame extraction” has now been published in theĀ Linguistics Vanguard.

The paper describes a novel approach to extracting semantic frames from texts, with a case study on extracting frames of causation from newspaper articles. The computational construction grammar approach yields a word-level F1 score of 78.5%, outperforming a commonly used approach based on conditional random fields by 4.5 percentage points.
