CLT seminar: Josef Ruppenhofer – Blowing hot and cold: on efforts to acquire scale-structures for a frame-based lexical resource

SEMINAR

In this talk, I will report on ongoing work with colleagues that seeks to acquire scale-related information for sets of lexical items. Building on earlier work in which we compared various methods to induce intensity orderings for adjectives (good < great < excellent), we are currently exploring ways to order adverb-adjective combinations (involving the same adjective) by intensity, and to generalize from there to an overall ordering of adverbs. In presenting and trying to make sense of various unexpected findings, I will extensively discuss connections to and relevance for the purposes of linguistics, lexicography, and (frame-based) sentiment analysis.
