Joint Semantic Predicate & Semantic Role Annotation
for German (GNVN)


We provide two datasets with new annotations for two German corpora: SALSA as it is compiled for the CoNLL2009 shared task, and the Dortmund Chat Corpus .

Additionally, we provide you a with demo WebAnno project for the annotation task.

Our annotations, the conversion scripts and the WebAnno demo project are freely available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

Due to licence issues for the CoNLL2009 (SALSA) data, a conversion script is available to insert the annotations into the original corpus text.

Semantic Annotation for the CoNLL2009 (SALSA) corpus

  • 3200 annotated instances of 275 verbal predicates (only SRL annotation)
  • conversion script for creating the complete CoNLL2009 corpus text with the GNVN annotations

Semantic Annotation for the Dortmund Chat Corpus

  • 450 annotated instances of 30 verbal predicates

WebAnno demo project

The demo project demonstrates the joint Semantic Predicate and Role Annotations according to the 'GNVN' guidelines on the German trial data of the CoNLL2009 Shared Task.
